You stuck me on replay with The Wanderer ... "Cause I'm a wanderer yeah the wanderer I roam around around around around around around around 'Cause I'm a wanderer I'm a wanderer." (Dion and the Belmonts old song). Wanderlust is so appealing ... wanderlost is not at all! You did a 180 by removing only one letter! Superb Creation!
