Anywhere I go I like to be the sparty pants guy that everyone else basically facepalms, laughs, " ba dump dump" (poor comedy drums), and / or the verbal reaction of "really??" I keep tossing between "Reefer", "Sea Ya Later", and "I Sea Fish". Once mi...

Re: Derek's dream

I definitely want to meet Richard I pass by his back yard a few times a year in the fall / winter seasons (this year being the only exception I hope).

Re: Derek's dream

Fuzz,
