Larry,

Glad that my little quotes make you think. They make me think, too. Some of my friends have started sending me quotes to post. This one about having new eyes was sent by a friend. I really liked it, too.

Hope you are doing well. So much traveling for you. Will you be "home" for good anytime soon?
