I notice you're turning into a romantic poet in your dotage old son. So being a grumbler myself, i'm curious if you find it more satisfying than the grumble or the noodle?
Charlie -- In my dotage, I think I am more willing to admire a wider variety of stuff floating in the river. Fiction is easier than fact -- and I have been rightly accused of being a Romantic -- but sometimes the sheer fun of what's easy takes command.
I wish for you significant fun, for my own personal pleasure.
