I got a smile from this, John ... funny and witty, but also because I couldn't help think: "Oh, lordy, what I'd give to have nothing to do, lol!!", but instead I end up praying each day for more hours to fit everything in, (and I only sleep five as it is, haha!). Great stuff, my friend - keep it coming! :-)

John, your mind works too arduously to be unemployed, hence my entertainment with its labors.
