:lol: Lindus I am sure that this fine checker book in question was read internationally, but unfortunately your answer here is not the one we are seeking. The hour grows late so I must sign off for now, so please give it another try tomorrow. "Mr. Checkers"

:lol: Good evening Lindus. It is nice to hear from you today. Unfortunately the book you have chosen is not the one we are looking for, but it will probably come to you when you are not thinking about it. Please keep in touch. Take care and God Bless. :lol: "Mr. Checkers"
