When you’ve gone over something again and again and again and again, like I have, certain questions get answered. Others spring up. Your mind plays tricks on you. You play tricks back.

And, for me, there was also Black Sabbath on the Close-n-Play.

I was thinking more of the problem of calling someone when I can’t see my contact list. I suppose I might adopt a variation of your technique.:grin:
