Sorry Dick.
                 My irony seems to have gone astray too, no offense 
intended to Mr (President) Lincoln.  I have enjoyed the Bolden thread, 
even the wry humour (or is it humor). I was glad to have a chance to 
comment again on one of the forgotten men ( Not Abe Lincoln - Buddy) 
and boost one of my pet projects; to hear a good  reconstruction of his 
band.. Keep well
