I scrolled down to the "punt" issue & read it. I pasted it from there. here is my response. as you probably figured, it didn't REALLY mattered to me what punt is. ot was just, you know, curious... however, your explanation made it clear to me why I was in the dark. well, I travel alot! all over the plannet, like I said. I even got to the west coast, & even to ca, can you imagine that ?! but, & this is the big BUT ! I don't follow sports, what so ever. nothing ! no football,soccer,sucker,basketball, NA-THING !! I just don't find it interesting. I got few other hobbies to put the time on.
so that's the reason.
thank you though. & be careful with the exhaust.

Do you ever take in any football games? When the team with the ball can't seem to move the ball, and have no other options, they fall back and "PUNT". They kick it down the feild and start over. It is an old saying ( and maybe I'm dating myself here ) that we've used out here on the West coast for decades. When we get to something that stumps us, and we seem to be at a stand still, we just say "PUNT". Basically, it means to put down, or stop what you are doing and kick back for a minute and then, jump in and usually you go in with a new perspective. Many times, you are stuck on one train of thought, and getting away for a few minutes will open your mind to new ideas and a possible fix. O.K., bad choice of words. How about, solution. How's that my friend??? In the original post, I detected this sort of situation and just said "PUNT".
Sorry for the confussion...........Rehd
