:Hopefully, Windowseat (Nancy) will not find this as condescending and irritating as I do!"

Sorry, this "old dinosaur," (guilty as charged) happen to enjoy the high class that my wife displays in feminine intuition. I depend on her a lot, for as a man, I can think with only one side of my brain at a time, where you ladies can us both at the same time, according to people who study that sort of thing, and I rather think they are on target. OR.......... maybe I just happen to have the enjoyment/company of a super sharp woman.

In any case, a note to windowseat.......I too, hope you are not offended in any way. You have a Feste nominee logo, so you obviously are a pretty helpful person. It would be selfish of me to wish you were with Pro, due to my limited time. Normally, much of my time at 82 is spent with a new baby in the house, and maintaining this old frame of mine.

It gives me great pleasure, Wendy, to grant you one of your desires before I express my own. "Reading this makes me absolutely SURE that the Feste Award should be restricted to those who carry on the original TMF vision -- to Educate, Amuse and Enrich -- freely and for the pleasure of helping each other." Grant: Forever restricted to Oldmangene henceforth.

My own: One shot at me, shame on you, two shots at me, shame on me.

From the other (wrong) side of the tracks, but making the best of it
