      Before I came up with these two lines, I had several other two-liners, which just didn’t seem to work. This one did…and does. 😉

      • That is often the way. Sometimes I’m not quite happy but end up sticking with something that’s not quite right due to time pressure, but I usually feel better if I putz around until I find something better. I’m glad you did, too.
