That is the exact point I was getting in my reading but didn't know how
or if it could be justified grammatically. I did some more reading in
Wallace and realized that I was on the wrong track with the
"appositional" or "epexegetical" genitive. Then came your post to clear
things up nicely. Thanks again.

Your Blue Ridge Mountains must be wonderful. I shall think wistfully of
them as I spend a week sailing and fishing midst the Minnesota mosquitos
at the end of May. Will you see Bearded Bill of Ashervill this Summer?
I keep thinking that one of these days we will see one of his stream of
consciousness postings on B-Greek again. They were always well worth
wading through.

Blessings on you Summer in the clear air
