I came >this< close to living on "The Shelf" Thirty Years Ago.
Whoa! Dodged that bullet!
Helen has fortitude with a Capital F to have put up with me all these years as friends, kids, pets, neighbors, random people on the street, dead fish and the Intertube will attest! (some of them unpaid for this endorsement)
So, here's to you, Sweetie! Thanks for taking me off the Shelf.
