  17. Hey Lenny!
    Very good. I used some words like yours. Sometimes one can be a 'blogaholic' with a case of 'blogstipation':-)
    Careful not to overuse the exclamation mark!!!!!!
    And Lenny, here's one for you. Why is 'abbreviation' such a long word? Ha ha!
    Hugs and smiles, your way, Mr. Gary :-)
