    I haven’t been on this website for a couple of days, and I have missed your puns and other funny plays on words.

    You are a man of great wit!

      Thank you for calling me a wit, Kathy. You are, of course, half right.

    Bill, we need to present you with the “Coolest Person on HO” award. It’s an award I previously won in my imagination but you really deserve it.

      I know I won’t win. You, for example, are WAY cooler—but, really, it’s an honor just to be nominated.

    Bill Spencer I would expect nothing different from you for the holiday season. I can’t thank you enough for brightening my day daily and my fruitcake! I loved my fruitcake!
