Mayday! Mayday! . . . - - - ... Starship Geppetto’s to Shelby...

Ravioli... machine... DOWN!
Pasta rolled and ready early this am. Filling prepped and at the ready. A flip of the switch... a few short revolutions and then... silence. Nothing more. She wouldn’t turn!
Shelby came as quickly as possible. He’s headed to Richard and G &S Machine in Keizer.
We are into some next level “sheeet” here. It seems the motor rebuilding of decades ago was installed backwards. Time will tell and the genius of Shelby will reveal itself.
To watch him analyze the situation was like watching a highly qualified surgeon. He knows what makes it work. And so we wait.
Raviolis down for now.
The good news... Roger and others put up ravs by hand. They will be tested tomorrow... to see what they bring.
Meanwhile, mechanic, Shelby, will do his due diligence and see to it the challenge is addressed and rectified. We trust that much. Shelby is the best!
Meanwhile... we began the long forgotten quest of hand pressing Ma’s raviolis.
Such a trip.!
Reminds me of this...
Ma Barsotti’s grandson, Tony Bidwell came in for dinner. He ordered Ma’s Ravioli. In truth... he received the last full serving. From here forward... we will be going old school... pressing and rolling... waiting for the news that Shelby has found the fix... and the way to get us back in the business of mass producing Ma’s Raviolis!
As I have been known to say... “Holy "sheet" Balls... God is in control!"
Tomorrow will tell. Prayers appreciated!
