Subject: RE: Lyr Req: He walks with me and ...
Thanx for the tech tips, fellow Pilgrims, but most of that is still mostly gibberish to me. Still learnin after all these years, don'tcha see.

"Jaque" indeed rhymes with "Rake"; I spell it that way since it is a perversion of the Franco-Yankee "Petit' Jaques" (Little John) my Pa used to call me. He worked in a paper mill in Berlin, NH, staffed (per tradition) predominantly with Franco Canadian expatriates, or decendants thereof. When I was a kid, the public schools up there still taught exclusively in French (I went to Gorham, where they spoke Yankish). And yes, I do have a rake (usually in the back of my van to facilitate dump-picking) and raggedy denim "overhauls" - although I'm currently wearing Amish-styled "Broadfalls" from GOHN Bros., which i am rather partial to.

I tried to "join" this thing but notice I'm still being called "Guest"(?). I've bookmarked this site and enjoy prowling around here, as it seems to be richly inhabited with kindred Spirits and generally interesting persons.

Way past bedtime & work t'morry, so G'night & Godbless one & all!
