Please give me a minute to upload a photo for verification. Internet connection is very slow at the moment.[enjoy a potato-quality picture from my grandson's smartphone]: http://i.imgur.com/5HDGbBZ.jpg?1
My grandson /u/slapdashbr asked if I would do this to share some of my experiences with the reddit community. He is assisting by typing my responses.
edit: thanks for your questions. It's getting late here, time to watch Blue Bloods.
