Lightbulb Westie Dubb®

The West Highland White Terrorist (as seen in avatar) provides a consistent, weekly supply of dubbing material. The undercoat is great...thinking about dying some...but the wife won't let me near her with the Kool Aid

Flyman,

You are too funny. Will you send me an e-mail at donw@genesco.com. I would like to ask you a couple of questions.

Thanks,
