Have a great day, Talk to you soon, Jerry
Ditto, Happy Thanksgiving Rich, thanks for starting this thread. Interesting posts with lots of denials including claims that we haven't been so thin as nation since post WW II when we were all short of food. (yeah, right) Try looking at footage from the affluent 60's to see what the norms were then.

Retired in Jan, 2010 at 55, moved to England in May 2016
Now it's adventure before dementia
