I saw the title of this thread and thought it was an obituary! Thankfully not.
Wow...now that's sobering...obviously since I'm NOT
dead, that had never occurred to me :~)
Truth be told, this whole thread is mildly disconcerting to me. I really do appreciate all the kind words–but it's not something I'm really used to here on LuLa. I tend to be called the LuLa Pit-bull most of the time because, well, I tend to call things as I see them and don't spend a lot of time soft peddling my opinions. I try to be civil but I don't worry about being polite.The way I describe my approach is to be "verbally aggressive" (although some people think of my approach more like a scorched earth policy).
So, thanks for all the kind words...I do appreciate it, but can somebody please start an argument somewhere so I can get back to my more natural style of posting?
