Really, that was uncalled for.
Ah... Well... "Andy",

Me being "Old as Dirt" (as my daughter insists), any woman under the age of 60 is a "Young Lady" to me; and, whereas Ms. (Mrs. ?) Ferron and I have not been formally introduced in any meaningful way, referring to her as "Young Lady" rather than the rather presumptuous first person familiar, "Donna", or the more formal, but rather cold, "Ms. Ferron", is rather an accommodation than a diminution. Moreover, I remind you that in past "Ms. Ferron" has more than amply demonstrated her capability of standing her own ground rather well in a verbal jousts, absent the intervention of would-be Galahads, if that were my intention (which it was not), No?

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
