67. anaxarchos, We may not agree on some things but I really
enjoy your warm spirit. I utterly agree with you about TIA. He is a national TREASURE! I'm glad he finally got to have a head to head chat with the academics which was what I wanted to see in the first place and what I had bought my popcorn for! :popcorn:
Glad to see you back! :toast: Come to my 'house' anytime. You are a very welcome, interesting and well mannered guest!
:loveya:
Very Best Regards,
Melissa
