    It's lovely Cin - no apologizes for those photos! And of course, it's huge and specimen sized! You don't own any runts, do you?

    I'm sending my kids down to summer camp!

    Oh, the 'chids could stay here for the winter. I'll just move in with Cin. I take up far less room! And know how to mix drinks and fire up some grub.
