    Doc, easy there, now. I still have to walk through doorways, and my head might not fit any more if you keep that up!
    And, thanks a bunch! You are a very kind man.

    The "gig" I used to gig for frogs was a long pole with a trap catch at one end and why I've no kept it I've no rationale for as now with wobbly legs I'd never be able to stand secure in a skiff as I once did. On a Saturday morning, two of us would gig near a hundred or more frogs for which we would then be paid 20 cents each by the butcher. It is only since becoming an adult, did I find what a delicacy that frog legs were to eat. As a professional LEO I learned to communicate using legal terms with lawyers and Judges, and lately I've learned many more body terms than I learned in school to understand what my doctors tell me. Thus, my point is why a professional will not communicate in lay terminology.

    When the subject is music, not many well known performing musicians are accredited by the state with certification in music ability and although I am, I'll refute such in respect I have for others I know have more ability to play better and even more in depth knowledge than I have. To me professionalism is nothing more than a reputation, and not an elite socialistic betterment than others.

    Just the facts of life! Different strokes for other folks. I enjoy my music, however it is or isn't.
