Double Yikes! Todd's message reminded me that this year is the 50th
anniversary of my being licensed. Gulp.
OK, then. I hearby announce a special certificate for anyone who works
suffixes that spell "Fiftieth Anniversary of the Licensing of K N EIGHT H V
Nineteen Fifty Seven."
(Oh yes, there will be a small charge for S&H - say, ummm, fifty dollars.)
Todd, I hope you can join us again this year. You were missed last year.
