L.A. is fine I have a nice house & pool, room for most of my collectables. I have a computer my friend Eddie got me one for Christmas. We better get at least George W. in next election, though my favorite is probably Pat Buchanan but he can’t win.

Next time a friend comes over I’ll learn.” In fine condition.
