    Next time, they should get it typed up by a human being who can actually write in English, not just any old mammel.

    I cannot speak for the mammel (sic) family elderly. I’m not at liberty to judge their command of any language.
    To my fellow mammalians reading these posts, “No Worries” and hope for the best.
