|Joe, thanks for sharing this story which of course I read to the end. No, I'm no legend, but I was happy enough to meet some in person.
I've been moved to tears that you read through all the postings in the forum. Didn't know that you are Scottish, however. I met a Scottish lady in Australia and I had an even harder time understanding her than I had understanding the Australians (well, the Tasmanians where particularly difficult to understand ;-).
