My bad memory again--at least I remembered it was Texas. Having made this mistake, I should henceforth remember Dallas. I usually learn best from the mistakes I make. I still remember how to spell cemetery from having missed it on a spelling test in the 8th grade (and how do most of you spell it, btw, without checking a dictionary? -- smile) Sue, hopefully your niece's vacation home will survive without problems. At least the hurricane has been downgraded to a 4--not much help, but better than a 5. Gerald, I guess I'll have to go have a bite of chocolate to pep up my brain. I can't eat too much at a time because I get migraines, but it's been a while and obviously that part of my brain that's controlling concentration and memory needs a fix (smile).
