I'am sorry...I did not see scratching on the list or re-adjusting either.<br><br>Too Easy!

Re: All I can say Marg is - 10/23/02 05:52 PM

I think I was readjusted. Once. When I was ten or so. They called it a whopping, though, so I'm not sure it's the same thing.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Re: All I can say Marg is - 10/23/02 06:05 PM

MacBabes are always well-adjusted. Isn't that right, Marg? <br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
