Hard to hit the low notes without b@!!$, too! But the reports of my impending divorce are greatly exaggerated. For one, my wife's name isn't "Nancy". Jackie "The Jokeman" Martling, however, was once married to a Nancy. Fast forward to 1:20 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfSraY_WbHY&feature=kp Bababooey to y'all!!!

Does anybody know how much of the sale price went to Herb? This was such a great selfless act... Anyway, I assume that you won this in person during the live auction event, but, if you didn't... how did Heritage ship this? I would like to think that Ha went out of their way to protect it properly, but....
