Well thanks for that Fox.   >:(  I informed Ms Dao about your suggestion and she lit into me with venom and spite, fortunately mostly in mandarin, the gist of which was that she didn't want geeks living in basements staring at her picture. Under no conceivable conditions was her picture to be posted on the site. And no, she did not make her fortune in the 'movies'.

She was steaming angry, but maybe after time passes she'll phone back.

That reminds me of something. I was married almost right after I left home but my older brother stayed. I went back to my old home one day with my wife to see if there was anything I forgot. She waited in the car. He looked at me sheepishly and said, "I don't know if you want to see this." It was a letter from an old girlfriend I hadn't talked to in a couple of years. I should have read it inside because when I get into the car with it and honestly (stupid, I know) told her it was from an old girlfriend, I've never seen her move so fast then or since to grab it out of my hands and open it. And then she wanted me to write a letter back to tell the girl that I was married. So yeah, don't get that picture sent to your home, especially if it's from an old girlfriend. But a new girlfriend would be fine.

And of course, this has nothing to do with Buster's story but there we go.

Thanks for reading. I'm sure Buster could have written it better.

I doubt that very much!

Even better if your "current" girlfriend/wife supports the thought of a "new" girlfriend

I couldn't be so lucky! lol But to be honest, taking care of a single woman is hard enough. Two would melt me.
