Glad you bumped the thread up. I hadn't had the chance to read it before now.
What a dog! I've learned through life that when I look back on my life, the people that I thought at the time totally awful, are the ones you admire and remember later. eg. my Jr. High Vice Principal that kept busting me for skipping school (kids! don't try that at home
) He used to bust my butt everytime he could, BUT he gave me respect abd I learned alot from him.
I think that applies in this case. So very glad you shared the story with me.
