Looking good...... again......

Glad others have a chance to see the results from all your hard work.

I reviewed the old thread "Getting started" reminded me about how much effort is involved.

Great article. Lots of fun reading it. Thanks for sharing it, and thanks for getting the word out to ever more people.

Thanks everyone for the comments...

Lets see Barry... You thought I sounded like I'm in my mid 50's and my photo looks like a father of a mid 50 year old... which would be about 75? So I look like a 75 year old and sound like a 55 year old!

I'm sure I could come up with a snazzy comment but I can't really see the screen to well with my tri-focals and the kids hid my walker again .

Click on my profile to see my true age, but I'll expect birthday card from here on out. ...................................

The article stated you graduated high school in 1986, most people did that at age 18, so that should make you ...and holding...

Holy crow, Tim, I had a look at your "age" on your profile.

I stand corrected. You are almost YOUNG. My goodness. A babe in swadling clothes (whatever swadling cloths are - where did that come from in my brain?).

I have to concur with Flitzwhopper - they nailed it. Me too.
