My Wednesday’s Guest today is Slim Randles again with a few words about something that some of us can relate to.   “Bert looks good this morning, Doc,” Dud said, quietly. Three stools down the counter, Bert smiled and said, “Yes, I certainly do!” We turned toward our old pal. “You heard that?” “Sure did, […]
