CATCHING UP 

NOVEMBER 9, 2018



     I've been busy editing the video for bag of bones, but I want to take a moment and recognize all the work and sacrifice, all the long hours of standing up for the little people, that so many dedicated citizens have given to their country in need.

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE TO SAY 

This is what I have to say and I have to say it now while it's still fresh in my mind. I can't wait to say it any longer, like I did the time before when I forgot what I wanted to say and then spent like a whole day forgetting that I was going to say it at all, and then couldn't remember if I'd said it.
