@Shannon, @WhollyJeanne, @Dragonfly -- oh wow! Thank you all so much for your kind words! I don't know what to say. So I'll just smile and be happy that it worked for you. :)

This is glorious. Noël, you are one of the gifts of Reverb10 and I'm so glad it's what brought me to your happy place on the internet.
