The original post was mine.. sometimes when people reply they snip or otherwise remove the address of the original poster, a bad practice as it causes confusion and hard feelings.. to repeat, I ORIGINALLY POSTED THIS MESSAGE.. although the reply may have been Mike Curtis, it does sound like him

Sorry Ruth..

Uh....  I didn't say any of that.
I don't even know half those words.
