Well, I did price pan flutes a few years ago when the music was popular, but the prices of even the least expensive (read "cheap") were out of my reach.

I guess both Philip and I were in our early 40's when Star Wars hit the scene. From my present vantage point, that's a young sprat.

Holy Moly!

I was just getting adjusted to geezerette status, only to return to the agora and find that I am a "junior" member. This is great! :D

Howdy, youngster. Isn't it a double greatness to know that you are also the Grande Dame of the Agora? No other non-male has attained the status of Grand Panjandrum. Should we petition to have that changed to "Panjandra"? :D

Panjandra... it has possibilities. As long as we don't wind up with panjandress or some such abomination. :lol:

If fr Lat, panjandrum has a neuter ending, so everyone can be equally offended. Perhaps female should be panjandra?

As it is a made up word, I suppose we can do pretty much what we will. Perhaps "Panjandrette" for the very young? Or does that sound too much like a place to wash your night clothes?

I like your new signature, by the way. To keep it alive, I'll quote it here: Never iron a four-leaf clover, because you don't want to press your luck. Once you change it, it will go away in all posts.

For anyone who wishes to leave their mark, visit the ancient (originated over 8 years ago!) Tagline Graveyard and say what you used to say.
