I became more interested in ecology, etc. Even subscribed to 'Mother Earth News' magazine. So I decided to attend Iowa Lakes Community College. Spent 2 1/2 years there, and got a A.S. in hort. Same weekend I graduated, I moved my family down to Dallas, TX and started working for ChemLawn Corp. This goes on & on, so I won't bore you to death with any more.

Hope you all now know why I'm a HAWKEYE fan who lives in the HAWKEYE state.

p.s. Mickey Mantel was actually one of my customrs in Dallas.
Hey Larry,
I was just having some good, clean fun. Everyones hand slips on the keyboard sometimes. Nobody's perfect. I don't know about that "Haight-Ashbury" thing you had going back in the day...that's just a little before my time. I was a "Wild Child" myself. Now I have a reputation to uphold. Don't get me wrong, I still know how to have fun. I just have to make sure I don't have too much...
"The Poor Fish" circa 1930's: The Poor Fish wouldn't have been caught if he'd known enough to keep his fool mouth shut.

I'd be VERY surprised if Larry didn't know we were just giving him a good natured ribbing.
