  1. The terminology: “dames”, “broads”… (Killer Covers) ha ha I love it, and you are not nearly as old as I am! Your work on this stuff is much appreciated, the Rap Sheet included. If you work too hard, however, and earn a ticket to Heaven before I do, please find a way to get away for a second from singing praises to the Creator all day to let me know if we get weekends off up there.
