Hello Catch Her In The Wry!

May I call you Wry?

What you describe in your post here sounds a lot like my honeymoon. Only kidding. (Or am I?)

Just incidentally, the thinking man dot com is closing its doors for good. It was a one year contract I had with this company, and they want big bucks to renew. Hardly worth it. I now have a new website up and running. Most of it is original material, all of which is related to the Tea Party I'm heading up here in Northern Colorado.

Both books are finally finished; the second one should be off the press in a month or so.

Hope you're well, Ms. Wry.

Yours truly,

Ray

P.S. You wouldn't believe the word verification I got this time around!

But did you replace the cushioned toilet seat with another cushioned toilet seat?
