    I doubt if they were like this when new.

    Dear Sheldon,

    Possibly older than you (the recent thread on age includes the necessary date and address for
    tasteful presents), perhaps merely old before my time, and maybe even going back further right here
    in this thread--if you look in the dark backward and abysm of time, thou mayst see the ancestral
    post in which the list of acronyms for HTH includes Harry The Horse (to my jingoistic satisfaction),
    but not Henry the Horse (to Dave's dismay).

    I'm still wondering what Hjälper Torr Hud means.
