Just let a "Walter" type figure go on an auction on E-Bay. Would rather have Fred the Fried Chicken and a Vern. Selling a few more unwanted items and cashing in all my empties at the Beer Store aught to do it. Steve Ax said I could get a Vern with blue feathers and blue head plume. How cool is that? I know you're supposed to change the commercial name of a puppet to match personality but Vern just looks like a Vern. Maybe I'll change his name when I meet him in person. Made a list of names for Vern but didn't like any of them. Any suggestions? Picked out a name for Fred. Ten Der Turkey. What do you think? How come I'm writing this stuff? Maybe I need a job. Wait a minute I'm retired. I'm too busy to go to work!!!!!
