    Before I clicked on the thumbnail to enlarge the photo I thought, "doesn't he know it's easy to correct a photo and turn it 90 degrees?". Then I clicked on it and said, "ohhhhhhhh"

    Your assumption of my computer skills isn't that far off. I still have issues figuring out how to imbed pictures.

    I clicked on the photo and my knees got weak. When 18" off the ground is high, how is it with all that air below you? So you don't have to worry about skunks, snakes or alligators like some of the HF do? Love the book reading, it is sooo boring up there!!!
