Hey Paul! Wanted to check in on whether you still might be interested in submitting your toy theatre show to the 2009 National.
I enjoyed talking with you when you came to "Cinderella" at the Center.
Hey, Paul. It was good to meet you at the National fastival. I would say thanks for your performance, but it sucked worse than finding a clear view into the neighbors' window only to dscover a bathing Billy Ray Cyrus! Nice plan to have us all bussed out to another theater so we couldn't leave!
I actually had fun. Thanks for the good times.
Hi Paul a.k.a. Uncle Fatso,
Although we are not yet official hub friends (I haven't yet figured out how to invite anyone) I believe we are friends from 1981, as you still owe me money from back then. Speaking of money, I hope you got and cashed your check from the 2007 Rampage
If you invite me to be your friend, it is a good bet that I will accept. Speaking of the AAA (as in your profile) many people do not know that, in addition to being the Humor Consultant to the P of A, I am also the Humot Consultant to the AAA
