rich--are you saying that this is going to be with me forever?  oh jeepers--i
really messed up didn't i?  i know all about foot injections--two years ago i
had plantars warts removed--to anesthetize the area, the doctor stuck a
needle into the bottom of  my foot close to 60 times.  THAT pain is something
i'll never forget.
