After listening to all the tales here, I'm wondering if I'm not in some
sort of denial or something. It *was* twenty years ago that I had that tub,
and while I'm only a few years older than George's daughter, I suppose I
might find that I'm not as flexible as I used to be. ;-)

Funny how many times I've had this said to me this week! Rest assured, most
of the skiing I do nowadays is the cross-country variety. If I were to run
into a tree, the worst that could happen might be a bit of bark dust in my
eye. :-)  Even when I do have a chance to downhill ski, I'm far too chicken
to ever stray off a marked trail. :-)

Speaking of catalogues...are any other Canadians on this list finding that
their catalogue arrival is seriously delayed? I'm *still* waiting for a few
that were due right around the time our post office went on strike in late
November. Might be my address change though, that tends to confuse things a

than use one.
