Since this is my 200th postie, LDs, I'm totally stealing this from Aunt Becky (she rocks my sox right off of my feet). (she's not my real Aunt, but I totally think I've got a girl crush on her) If you're just joining us here in the Lair, prop your feet up, have a brew (your call; Callahan knows every drink in the book), and spell us a tale.
