Thanks Joe! I'm pretty happy about it. Pretty happy, indeed...

Joe Abercrombie said...

I too am happy. David, my hit squad will be on their way to you just as soon as they've taken Scott Lynch out of the picture. If you could just stay in your home until they get there it'll make things easier for everyone...

Joe Sherry said...

Congratulations to both of you...

Mr. Abercrombie, if you could call off your hit squads for another week, that would be great. At least let David bask for a week before you knock him off. I hear MRK has her hit squads out, too...
