I have to say that I read some of the replies to this poster's question and
frankly, I was a little taken back by some of the replies....not
necessarily in the content but in the way were phrased. As a matter of
fact, I wrote her and appologized for my own curt response (an emphatic,
one word message.."NO!") After reading other responses that were indeed
posted to the list, I came to the conclusion we, including myself, were
being a little snip about it.
The message to us all?.....well, you already know the answer.
BLUE SKIES!, Any day above ground is a good day!
