I'm so happy youíre not upset. The use of the word was so much softer and non-judgmental from the word that first came to mind as I read your first
And your concern for the thickness of my skin is most heartening. Thanks so much for your caring Ė But to answer, no, thin itís not. You see, I have
spend most all my life in charge of folks that would make most peopleís hair stand on end and would challenge the patience of a Mother Theresa. After
35 years of that type work, you sort of learn how to roll with the punches and give some back. And as a result of this life experience, Iím
