Upon encountering a person "full" of themself, "Count yourself. You ain't so many." Buck's father.

(Thanks, Vicky. You know why.)

Even though I never got to meet Buck's father (He died before that was possible.), all I ever heard about him was super.

Of all great words of mouth or pen, the saddest are, "It might have been.".

"If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe." -Carl Sagan

Never eat more than you can lift. - Miss Piggy

Be nice to your children, they pick your nursing home.

Don't eat yellow snow.

"Just because you CAN do a thing, it does not mean that you SHOULD do a thing."
