It's about time I got more than 7 or so correct. I used to be ok at this, although I've been known to whine.
Next year! Meantime I'm cheered to be in august company.
Reminds me of one of the times I got to meet Cowdoc, an experience those who have met him and the Mrs. recommend highly. It was once when he was in Albuturkey without Mrs. Cowdoc, and Roger and I got him from wherever he was (Forest Service I think) and rustled him over to a cafe in downtown with what I consider excellent ordinary food - sammiches, pastries, jolly enough place but where you could still talk, and so on. Roger and Cdoc talked politics for a while, they being sort of similar, I take it, on stuff, and then Cowdoc and I got into football... we can both talk a blue streak! On leaving, we considered the pastries the Mrs. might like.
