I think I found a workable tire, it has been ordered, and I await delivery. I still haven't taken the current rear tire and rear fork off yet because of laziness and the chance this tire may work without further modifications.
But the big change is I was offered, and accepted, a job at my Daughter's school teaching PE as a long term substitute. Only know right now it will last until Christmas break in mid December, but there is the possibility it will last to the end of the school year. No, I'm not bored being retired, but because of my riding time out, I need something to get me out of the house and into the fresh air. Plus it will help offset the cost of Petunia's updates.
