    I'll have to look that up. I read Call of the Wild and White Fang at least twice as a youth. Never ran across A Piece of Steak.

    Remind me to stay away from the big resorts.


    Something I've neglected to mention is Pearl Harbor. I definitely want to visit. Much sacrifice, much respect.

    I sent Dogwood a PM couple o' days ago. Several months ago, he had said he was done with WB, but I still see him posting now and then. Maybe he's on a hike somewhere.
