Thanks Juanab.

Yes, it is the little stuff. My mom and I were getting ready to eat one night last week and we both started crying when we looked at the potato salad. Oh lord The things that will set you off are strange.

And hugs to all the curlies who have lost their loved ones, too. ((((curlies)))
