Echo, I would like to thank you again for your very kind words about the loss of my Darling Danette. You pm me where you would like meet on Monday and I'll be there. You seem like a very caring soul.

I'd rather live one day as a Lion than 1000 years as a sheep.

Scuba, I know I wiil love Big Red, the ride back home will take as long as needed. My employers are very forgiving as Danette and I are like family to them.
