Thanks Ed, I really enjoyed reading the write up. Glad you have improved your typing skills enough for us to know more about you. I learned quick though that my typing was much better if i put my donut down and typed with both hands. :lol:
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

You are whole new person since retirement, I wonder what the Bio would have looked like if it was done 6 months before you retired? Dislocated your donut finger, tough break.

Ya know I think this has to be one of the biggest shockers for bio's as I would have never guessed Ed as an x-ray tech. I was thinking more along the lines of a professional donut eater the way you and Joe talk. However I do appreciate the great read thanks for sharing Ed.

I think Ed just likes to eat....doesn't matter whether it's donuts, cornbread, or ice cream.

Look forward to seeing you at Cecil's in a week.

Interesting.... I guess the breeding pair does in fact work. Even with red and yeller Cubs.

I have done enough driving in Mass to know how you injured your finger!
