Wow. My response in my head goes back & forth between "See response to sebecman above", "Glad you know so much about me", and something that's borderline unprintable; so I'll stick with "See response to sebecman above."

I'm in people's homes regularly, I have in my office the security codes to more than 1,300 alarm systems, and we also have the front door keys to probably 150-200 extremely nice lake homes, where the owners are absent most of the time. We keep the keys here in our secured facility as a courtesy for our customers (without charge mind you), so their termite people & such can come by and check them in and out as needed.

My point is simply this - with all that opportunity to go "parasite" if I wanted to, it's my integrity that all those people count on most of all. And my integrity is obviously not for sale for the price of a pair of binoculars; if it could be had that cheap, there'd be a lot of cleaned-out lake homes around here. So again, "See response to sebecman above."

And I really must say "thank you" for immediately jumping to accusational pontifications. Well done young man; you really don't know anything about me.

RIP, D.H.L. - 1/19/24 - 1/25/15. WW2 army ranger, bronze star recipient, unrelenting defiler of nazi paratroopers, and nicest, hardest-working man I ever knew. Miss you, dad.
