Thanks, Corina, et al. Nice to know something short of a Mack Truck outweighs me!
Daph, Y'know 40 years of having the fair hit on my birthday, I've never been. Wacky that. Still I don't know that the wife'd appreciate me playing hooky while SHE's working. But thanks, I appreciate the offer.
And thanks again all! Yes, today I am officially ancient, decrepit and disintegrating rapidly. Which makes me fit in with all the other shambling undead around here.
