That is very pretty, Larry. I’m trying to find more words, but I don’t want to sound like I’m gushing.

As a proud owner of uncomfortable dentures, I am offended by the presentation of ”in your face” tooth picks... people should be more sensitive regarding physical disabilities and hurting the feelings of others.

Furthermore, with the latest political correctness movements, are you an ex-mariner to be permitted to use the word ”salt”?

I won’t even debate my webbed feet attached to my bottoms.
