Mako? Is that you Herb?

Best quote:  Tie

"Some people are like Slinkies- Not really good for anything but bring a smile to your face when pushed down stairs."

AND (paraphrasing here). 

"I'm of the opinion that women make poor wives ans surfers make bad husbands."

 

Being a repeat offender I'm of a mind to marry the two concepts in some fashion.  If only I knew how.........jk

My appologies for not attributing these to their rightful authors, but you know who you are.
