We each have our own minds.

I was out boarding!

What?  I thought you wanted to move to the Smokies?
Oh, that's right, those aren't *real* mountains.

Yeah, what's up like that?
It's your question, who are they to make the rules and parameters?
Pop-u-larity.  Number of people.  World exposure.
Seems pretty damn easy to me!

What, did The Who *lose* fans right after '71?
Did Quad cause them to lose fans?
Did the death of Keith cause fans to pack it in?  Obviously not.
They got more!

I'm wondering what color he sees when looking at the *blue* sky.

>You & Mark, I see, are both having

What, Mark and Jim are inseparable?

>We'll probably have to wait till July when more of the snow in VT melts.

Time to sail!
