There's a perfume that is popular among young women in the area, not sure
of name so won't hazard it. Every time I get around one who's wearing that
perfume I start sneezing. Can't figure out why they like it, smells, to me,
like a small animal died somewhere in their clothing. Sheesh, when I smoked
nothing smelled bad and I never had sinus problems or allergies. Almost
enough to make me go back to smoking.

I've been reading your sig line, you only have less than a week to go to
your surgery? We'll be thinking of you and Miz Anne will probably talk to
the Big Guy on your behalf. Tell Ray we're here as a support group 'cause
he'll sure need one while you're recovering. <BSEG>
