This ebook is licensed for your personal enjoyment; it may not be re-sold or given away to friends, family or acquaintances. And especially not to those people standing in the middle of the Los Angeles River, with those greasy, cardboard signs with crayon lettering saying “Weel cleen yer windshield fer kash or fud or used loteary tickkets.” If you want to give them money (or food) please feel free to do so…charity is good for the soul! I wouldn’t recommend the companionship part though, since there is no telling where they’ve been, or whom they’ve been with! I mean...what if they’ve been with Ashton Kutcher? Wouldn’t that be terrible? Talk about a horror story! If you feel compelled, or in dire need thereof, to share this book with others, please purchase an additional copy for each and every recipient. In fact, buy ten copies for each of them…that way, if they lose one, they’ll still have nine more for backup! You just can’t be too careful! Just giving free advice, you see…not like I’m in this for the money or anything. If you are reading this book and did not purchase it, or it was not purchased for your use only, then please return it to Smashwords.com and purchase your own copy…or twenty…whatever. Wait a minute! This story is free! Never mind...give it to whomever you wish! In fact, that’s an order recruit! Drop down and give me TEN! Hut! Thank you for respecting the hard work of Bartholomew Thockmorton.
And wash between your toes, gosh-darnit!
This work is dedicated to Mama, who gave me my life-long love for Gil Kane.
I miss you.
