Yep, it is just nice to see that she didn't end up like Marilyn Monroe or Jayne Mansfield and seems to have found a good life after stardom. Much like Shirley Temple did not fall into the Child Star trap.

I know I've posted this before, but I knew a contentious fellow whom I once suggested was "being paranoid" about something, and he shot back, "I'm not paranoid. I'm merely in possession of the facts."

I've used it myself, although not here that I remember.

'sides I try to avoid words as long as "possession" here. :wink:

Are ye pipes really that big? What are they high G? And what are all of those appendages? It is worse than Nano's flute with the keys and the tuning slide and the head that twists around like “The Exorcist”.( I think I remember why I like my Peeler fife, only one moving part, the cork.) Go back to watching the paint. The fumes have always made that job fun.

PS I see you voted Yes.

By the way, JES, what is that thing on the end of the bent J shaped tube that looks like a lolly pop with a hole in the side and what does it do?

I'll be presumptuous and answer for him. It's a resonator box, and its purpose is to intensify the presence of the bass drone's sound. Not all bass drones have them, but they're more standard on retroflex bass drones these days than not, I think. I've never seen a straight bass drone with one.

And the proper form of address among piperly sorts is not "lollipop", but "hockey puck". :wink:

And since all of us are Minnesotan (despite my current refugee status), the hockey puck is appropriate. :D
