Age sneaks up you. I don't blame you for questioning your ability to learn something new. I know, as the years pile on, the body doesn't always respond. Don't rush into this without...

Please check out Art's latest post. I'm not that much younger than he is, so I get where he is coming from most of the time. But, right now, this may explain some of what is going on.

Thanks Beth. I thought you were interested. San Carlos, Belmont, close enough. Funny story, my warehouse used to be across the creek from where this is being held. But that was 1983.
