Alas, Ted.  In your case it must be "very delayed dementia" in the
"incredibly old".  I heard recently that your first introduction to imagery
was from those Egyptian Chiselers doing the rounds of the Great Pyramid
circa -27 centuries BC.  But you are safe:  just bear in mind that only the
good die young!   And you can ignore that one about 'those whom the Gods
would destroy they first make Canadians' -- or is that properly 'they first
drive mad'?  I get these confused.

And I was delighted to learn, some weeks back, that Julia Child was born in
Canada.  It fits perfectly, as she never really fitted in down here in the
Great Republic though we all adored here with great love.
