Yes, Hulk, I talk about this every year. Say, how ’bout you grab a ladder and get over it?

Six years ago today, I was living in TinyTown, North Carolina, and I was headed to Raleigh for a job interview, just like Barney Fife. Remember when Barney and Andy would go there and they'd play the big-city music? It's at 2:33, below.   Perhaps as I tell this story you can have that tune … Continue reading Yes, Hulk, I talk about this every year. Say, how ’bout you grab a ladder and get over it?
