Hi Everyone………I'm typing this three hours before the close, and so far the day is going really well.
I am preparing for a final winter sojourn to Lake Tahoe, and thus will be "going dark" for most or all the remainder of the day. My posts will also be a little less frequent through next Thursday (yes, I know, this ranks up there with "the check is in the mail", and "another bus is coming right behind me", but you know what I'm trying to say).
I apologize in advance for what's bound to be a large comment thread, but I'm afraid it's a necessity for now. Good luck with the rest of the day, and congratulations on surviving an "interesting" week!
