    And neither can I, Hippsie! I found it, cut and pasted the part I needed, but no longer have the URL to it!

    If you want the instructions I cut and pasted, PM me with an email and I'll attach the Office 2013 document to an email for you.

    Maybe with what's left of it, you can figure out where I got it from. I'm pretty positive it came from Eight Forums.

    Nah, he'd rather tease KittyPaws and PipSqueak.

    He won't be too safe from PipSqueak for long, though, since I caught him (at approximately three months old) on top of the privacy fence the other day.

    KittyPaws is too much of a glutton and is too fat to jump that far any more.

    And whoever said we have patience didn't know much about those who jump in even when the water's not so warm.
