Ken D. Is Ken D!..................And nobody is perfect! It's called human nature and you can't cage that! Geeze ever seen a caged bear!............I feel sorry for them walking back and fourth all day long with nowhere to go! Some of us can keep control and some others will have a harder time in doing so. For sure I'm a bit like Ken and at times I just go B$&^&$^! I'll stop there! Ken, if you stay then welcome back.
Long night coming and going, will be packing order till the sun rises! Someone gots to do it!!
