Trouble seeing my monitors

Because I am vertically challenged, I was having trouble seeing my Go Power panel display.

Thanks to Peter Styer (pyster ) for giving me a great idea on how to remedy the problem.

Also, Cowboy Doug and his beautiful wife Cher, allowed me access to their workshop, so I could make angle braces for all three monitors, so they would all match. Gracias!

I am now ready for the next project.

Fred, I might suggest you read the monitors before imbibing, it makes focusing easier.

Great solution though, and the execution looks top notch.

Hey Fred,
I know you want to stay up with the young
Guys like me who know all the millennial lingo. So instead of saying I am totally jealous of your instrument setup I’ll just say
Totes jelly.

How does someone know such a phrase even exists much less dream it up?

..., remember totes, the elegant galoshes of past? It's the latin for "you have some jelly on your shoe totes"
