David, being at this moment engaged in a much simpler operation with so
far extremely uncertain results, I can only express heartfelt thanks for
your kind words -- truly encouraging at a grim moment. But I have another
question, this one possibly offtopic (in case lamb intestines are not
alternative photography), so if anyone is feeling sternly ontopic, please
delete now.

I'd actually been waiting for an e-mail from Loris, as I remember that he
not only lives in Turkey, but may be a native Turkish speaker? But it's
been about a week since we heard from him & I don't have him in the queue.
I seem to recall your being in Turkey also... Or is that a summer miasma?

In any event,to skip the tedious details, I'm trying to decipher my own
notes, centering on the supposedly Turkish word "kekeru" meaning fried
lamb intestine sandwich -- but my handwriting isn't clear. I asked the
fellow I buy (wonderful) fruit from, who claims to be Turkish, but he said
it may be a regional specialty. He'd never heard of it.

If Loris, or you, or any Turkish language maven (or possible gourmet) is
reading this, serious thanks for any help in advance. Apologies for the
interruption, and by all means (unless it's light sensitive) answer off

Thanks, and cheers,
