"Dad, I think televisions usually come with cathode ray tubes."

So I'm not the only one that remembers "tubes." I remember my father openning up the back of the TV set periodically to "jiggle" the tubes to get the set to work. How did we ever survive in such primitive times?



The Danes?

Then this must be what the legal profession considers the Kama Sutra.

Some anthropologists think that early man was not a hunter but a scavenger. As Joe Jackson once said, "If so there goes your proof."

The principal at Mr. Man's school told me that all four of her grandparents came from Denmark. I'll run your Kierkegaard theory past her. God knows I haven't given the PTA a reason to get 'em in a wad for months.

It's as good a place as any to start.

Great. Now I'm going to have that song stuck in my head all day.

Not that I can complain that strongly; Jackson's a favorite of mine. "Different For Girls" and "Be My Number Two" are favorites of mine.


This is so disturbing. I'm not judicious, but otherwise more like your father than any boy scout. A thirty-five year record of failure has not disabused me of the notion that I can fix anything. Maybe Martin Sheen will play me in the movie.

TPB, Esq.

Don't get me wrong. I can fix things - in fact, I like fixing things - but I don't like projects. I fix things when they have to be fixed. Otherwise, I leave garbage to the dump and those that need to "do" something (a.k.a., create a bigger mess than already existed).
