Heheheheh,... Ah, gee, Les, gimme at least ONE chance in this lifetime
to lord it over someone. You see, for the last 37 years I have been put
down, dismissed, laughed at, and ridiculed. All because I owned a
"little" Healey. In sports car circles, I was the 90-pound weakling that
the big boys kicked sand at on the beach. I was the last one they
picked when the guys were choosing up sides for football. I was the one
they snickered at when we stripped down for our Navy physicals. Now,
for the first time, I could really be someone because I own FROGEYES! I
mean, gosh, I could really look down on someone else for a change! Oh,
what an exhilarating feeling! My heart was pounding! I was all
aflutter. Then you had to go and point out that I had feet of clay!
All seriousness aside, Les, it is a wonderful feeling to be taken
seriously for once!
