Intriguing post ... one of 3 (out of the 134 in the MegaFeed when I checked this morning) that caught my eye before "marking all as read" ...
It was surprisingly simple to read, but then I've have lots of practice (having spent 34 years in the classroom reading student's work) before retiring happily in 2001. LOL
Thanks for sharing ... Hugs and blessings,
