I had it on last year and removed it for this year because it was widely felt that the only person who deserved to be on it was papajim.

If my joke went over your head, I will try to convince myself that it was because you were too tired from slaving away at work today. Perhaps you deserve a Blowie today.

But I do agree, there hasn't been a papajim type guy this year who brought a bunch of us together in a positive way.

So you had a great grandfather named Jesus, but you called him papa Jim? I am so confused right now.

He built his own deck on his house when he was 77. Had the lumber delivered and did it all from there. It is still standing, and passed inspection
