Herb, I don't know how it happened, but it works!
Setting the preferences in the Engine tab to default
fixed everything up!

Thank you so much! I'm really very grateful for your help.
I couldn't have done myself.

One thing I notice between your log and what I get is that I have

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.17 (TeX Live 2016) (preloaded format=pdflatex 2017.4.3)  11 APR 2017 07:12
entering extended mode
 restricted \write18 enabled.
 file:line:error style messages enabled.
 %&-line parsing enabled.

at the top and you have

 %&-line parsing enabled.

at the top of your log file. Notice that I have a line

file:line:error style messages enabled

while you don't have that line.

That information is used by TeXShop to determine what file and line within that file any error exists. I wonder if you have the compiler line for pdflatex set at an old value.

Please go to the Engine tab of TeXShop->Preferences and press the two default buttons in the pdfTeX section. You probably should do the same for the two buttons in the TeX+dvips+distiller section also.

Let me know if that fixes things up.

Good Luck,
