    Belated thanks for your response, LahPhotographer. I don't get here as often as I'd like in these years of my late adulthood, the years from 60 to 80 according to some human development psychologists.-Ron

    Belated thanks, SkyBlue. I should qualify that length of time in marriage. I've had two marriages: 1967 to 1974 and 1975 to the present--some 40 years in a marriage which will go the distance into my old-age, the years after 80, if I last that long!-Ron
