That's a good one, Bob!! I wonder if there are still "shotgun weddings" today. Hope this one is in the winners' circle. You placed in the history contest because you received high points from both me and James. I'm already getting complaints from people who didn't place, but I think this was the fairest way to do it. Did you see my blog? Love, Carolyn
