Ok...Rusty...reading your latest blog was a half hour...maybe hour...(I cannot remember...time was nonexistent) that I purely enjoyed. I kept thinking, "Which comment would be my favorite?" Then, I kept changing my mind. Actually, I'm not sure I could quote any of the comments now. NOW...I KNOW how brilliant and deep thinking you are, but...did you REALLY think of all this all by yourself? First, no one could have that many original thoughts, second, if such a thing were possible, it would take, uh, take, years to figure all that out. I guess I'll just have to assume that you don't sleep. Either that, or you take lots of long baths.

Some of them have possibly kept me up at night. But I never run out of entertainment, because I like leaving the imagination on hyperdrive.
