Took awhile to get back to this.  In the meantime, the shed now has
trusses up and the roof sheeting.  About 1/3 of the roof shingled. 
Sunday's project is to finish the roof!  [12x16 feet].

I made the change to add in 18.10 and must have mangled something. 
Attempting to start 18.04 results in:

docker-compose up -d ubuntu-18.04
ERROR: Couldn't connect to Docker daemon at http+docker://localhost - is
it running?

If it's at a non-standard location, specify the URL with the DOCKER_HOST
environment variable.

Which step did I miss?
