You adore torn up floors? ;) Me too. There is a Dallas Watson part of me that wants to just refinish the wood floor underneath... I thought of you when I was writing that tetanus line, actually. Ha!

You have no idea how many times we have watched that video, or sang that song. It's a little disturbing.

You did specifically Ballard related archeology? I might need to hire you. I am in dire need of snooping skills.
