Yes fire controlman. Surface depending on what system I get I am considering going below the line.

Can't wait to push the button finally.

.............yep, and cute little 18 year old blondes at Conn. College wore a pony tail, crinolines and Arpége.

(One had to be careful: Back then, 17 would get you 20.)

'Twas a nice day, folks - thanks. As Tennessee Ernie Ford sang - "Another day older and deeper in debt ..........."
