Hey, I say look at number six!

Seriously, way to go, Jack.

That's pretty impressive, Austin.

Nicely done,

Austin Carr said...

Hey, Lee. TFA says you're a pretty cool guy--for an ex-cop--and that he bought your book. Congrats on being #6.

Austin Carr said...

Thanks, aen. You're not a redhead, are you?

Austin...Glad you've dragged TFA all the way up to #7. Now find Jimmy Hoffa in book 3, and you're guaranteed to make it to #1. Hint: south goal posts in Giants Stadium. Throw in the Jersey Devil in south Jersey, and you'll rise like cream.

Might work. Or, TFA could have Mama Bones voodoo me into a vampire cat.
