Hi Teresa, Hi Proud Mom,

Here is one for both of you,

Its a square ring 6-4....................................B...R

It's my crazy way of saying thank you for the comments.

I'm a humble person but I love flattery,

Incidentally Teresa, I was born and raised in Derry just up the road from where you come from. Another coincidence: My wife's name is Theresa

Top of the morning to you both,

the Cryptic pro
