Good one David!! :D :D

I like one of the definitions to "sundries" - "miscellaneous items of
little value." Maybe his demo is of little value too!

I now have to wonder about his other request for, -Newton balls
May be on the same line as your sun-dried Veges. :D

Sorry for the bad puns - its one of those days...

I like one of the definitions to "sundries" - "miscellaneous items of little value." Maybe his demo
is of little value too!

I now have to wonder about his other request for, -Newton
balls
May be on the same line as your sun-dried Veges. :D

If you have a copy of the novel _The Sundered_ you could set that out?

Or maybe sun-dried (sun-dry) tomatoes? Grape tomatoes are kind of
ball-shaped.

I presume ss doesn't refer to Nazi balls, but stainless steel? I usually
prefer mine nickel-plated. (And for a nickel....)

Best,
David
