Thanks for the coin-comments, gang ...  Smiley

Carausius => thanks for the health-concerns (yah, it's been a pretty lousy year, health-wise)


Oh well ... on the brighter-side

=> my dog (Larry) managed to locate, eat and then destroy an opened tin of dog-food that I'd accidentally left on the kitchen counter (she's soooo fricken bad ... but man, she makes me smile)

NOTE => somehow she did "not" cut her paws or her mouth! (yup, she's an amazing dog!)
