(I'm sure that there must have been many out there who shared this sentiment when they viewed that picture.)
Alas, there is nothing I can do about my problem, other than write an occasional ditty on the subject. Here is my latest:

Once again, I hear myself muttering:

(Then I always return to my puttering.) *
