I am sorry. I feel like such an idiot. Everybody has SOMETHING to learn and today I learned something very important about the Internet even if it embarrassed me---that is OK because at least I LEARNED something.
Which is: A Thread is supposed to be carefully chiseled to accurately and completely deal with the original post, NOT wander all over the place.
I am afraid my desire to chat now that I am retired and have the wish to converse---has put me in the position of Thread Disrupter. I just never realized that Threads deserve to be unmolested by big mouths like ME.
I am saying this in humility and gratitude as it is NOT everyday that the old Doctor learns something important. This has been a great learning experience for me and perhaps taught me some better manners.
I love good manners.
