Hi Chris --

PostgreSQL Machine:
"Aggregate  (cost=140122.56..140122.56 rows=1 width=0)
(actual time=24516.000..24516.000 rows=1 loops=1)"
"  ->  Index Scan using "day" on mtable 
(cost=0.00..140035.06 rows=35000 width=0) (actual
time=47.000..21841.000 rows=1166025 loops=1)"
"        Index Cond: ("day" = 'Mon'::bpchar)"
"Total runtime: 24516.000 ms"
(Note this took 24 seconds after fresh reboot, next
execution was 11, and execution without explain
analyze was 6.7 seconds)

MSSQL Machine:
That "Explain Analyze" command doesn't work for MSSQL,
but I did view the Query plan. 97% of it was "Scanning
a particular range of rows from a nonclustered index"

Thanks for your help --Mark

TIP 9: the planner will ignore your desire to choose an index scan if your
      joining column's datatypes do not match
