I added an edit on my post. "The Barn Door" Ron Bean - Sat, 09/08/2018 - 8:48am I remembered the children's story about the barn door as I read this.

"Some things are of that nature as to make one's fancy chuckle, while his heart doth ache." John Bunyan Barn Door John E. - Sat, 09/08/2018 - 8:52am Oh, that good 'ol barn door story. I have "fond" memories of being forced to sit in the print shop putting those books together, for free, during the teachers' in-service week.
