    Hey, Denton, you'll never guess the coincidence I found!

    I was bouncing around the crib late one night trying to make a butterknife into a katana, when I stopped for a cup of pudding. They give pudding to all of the violent crazies at The Dean Clinic, and I got hooked on it. But I digress.

    I pulled up the forum and found some podcast with a host named--and you're not going to believe me but--his name was "Denton," too!

    I was stunned for about 30 to 45 seconds (even grabbed a second pudding) when I realized this 'Denton' was well-read, articulate and versed in that night's offering!

    We should get hold of this guy and give him a membership. As you'll remember, The Prepared One did a survey a few months ago and found that 17% of our members had actually read books with hard covers. Now, this statistic would have broken a full 20% but we had to include Wales into the statistics.

    But still, having a member who knows a lot of multiple syllable words and has a real job would be a feather in the cap of the moderator that snags him.

    Now, I hate to tell stories out of school, but some short, female member who is a whiz at cooking and canning has already pulled together some double-chunk chocolate cookies for this learned Denton, and might snatch him with her baking endowments. A word to the wise...

    Hey. I missed this poll. I actually own books with hard covers-- like almost 4000. And I've read one or two of them.

    Wow, how come you're not spearheading your own forum? I never read near that many books, and I took several English courses in college--of course, that was back when students knew how to read English and not just unintelligible misspelled rants.

    I have many, many books on military history. Both hard cover and paper back.
    Been a member of the Military Book Club for over 30 years.
    I read every night, and have 5 or 6 “working “ at any one time.
    I just started “George Washington In The American Revolution 1775-1783”. A hard back I picked up for $1 at our annual county library sale of old books. I actually bought 20 books at the latest sale.

    OK I'll buy the premise that 17% of the forum members can read books...but chew gum and walk at the same time? HA! NEVER!

    Well, that's easy to rectify. You should talk to this other Denton, the one with the radio show. He sounds pretty savvy.

    But to be honest this walk and chew thingie has come up amongst my cousins--you know, my boys that drive cars for men in a expensive suits but don't have an obvious job--those men.

    My cousin Alan is clearly not the brains of the outfit, and at the last family reunion/funeral I saw a tiny tattoo under his wrist watch. I finally got a good look at it when he went back for antipasto.

    This cousin liked gum but was always choking on it, so he got a tat that said, "Step, chew, step, chew."

    It's been three years he's walking and chewing gum like a regular person...

    I read a lot, I think everyone should know what the Playmate of the month’s likes and dislikes are. Highly educational.

    I remember a time in my life that cracking open a full strength Budweiser or bottle of Busch beer meant cramming a big ole dip of Skoal or Copenhagen prior to the first pull....(Glad I grew out of them Redneck Ways...)
