I remember "Much beholden to you, ma'am" in old cowboy movies. A good old word. It still retains its dignity, whereas in some circles "grateful" has come to mean something somewhat negative.

Yep, I actually like the word "beholden," mostly because it's part of an old Beatle song, isn't it? You know the one, "I Wanna Beholden Your Hand," I think it goes? Lol! I'd be willing to bet that, right now, your fave Fab Four song is "Help!" LoLouder! Good week to you, Jim!
I truly didn't expect "kiss my" to be followed by "aunt". Good one, Jim.
The train ride to Paris must be fun. Especially riding first class.
