One great thing about scallops, Bill, is that one does not have to chum the waters to get them.

Just drag a five ton metal net across the bottom of the Bay, and viola! All kinds of non-scallop crap, along with half a dozen delicious bivalves.

What was the incredible partridge in a pear tree funny 12 days of Christmas song!?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/25/18 3:35pm Parq:

Hi, Bill; hi, Maxine. Sorry, I had the day off so I sept through the live 'cast, but your show provided the soundtrack for Christmas day present opening and the contended sitting around that followed. By the way, the photos accompanying the Sammy Kaye and Rotary Connection tracks are vintage pics of Santa's Workshop in the Adirondacks, which was a major part of my childhood. My parents took me there as a baby and, some three decades later, were on hand when Mrs. Parq and I took our own tot there. Said tot is now 28 and some day...
