Bill,

Great story.  We are of the same "vintage" and have both found turning in the last couple of years.

You observation about the folks here at WR is dead on.

Thanks

Jim I wish Ed would or could be on here but he hates computers and thinks they are a waste of time. He's become quite frail over the last 6 months and hasn't turned much as of late. I'm hoping as it warms up in the spring he will be at it again.

Thanks
