  2. I agree with David, you have an outstanding sense of humor, Terveen; and with the high quality writing style of yours, it’s always a perfect combination. ☺️

      • It’s always my pleasure, Terveen. Oh, thank you so much. I feel the same way about your writing. Always have. I appreciate you and your words too. ☺️
