  1. Guys,

    I totally “missed” this – I actually read the post a few days back but did not see your “first” nomination (I am getting old and if it is not in a “box” or “chart” I just don’t get it sometimes – I am a “man” and we ain’t very good at multi-tasking) 😉

    Thank you for the “nod” – and for hitting it right on the head about “worrying” (I think we all should do more of that – especially “me” and my eyesight)! 😉

    Take care!
