Good morning Paul. Footprints or butt prints in the sand. Choose carefully. Enjoy your day.

First time I've heard this quote, but it's a riot and one that I certainly won't forget, Paul. Happy Monday. Happy President's Day.

While I agree in principle with the words of that quote, I must say in my current state of mind, I'd be happy to leave butt prints in any sand available.  I'm in need of a vacation, and a beach to provide me the opportunity.

What a clever quote this is!  My butt prints do not show up as I sit on the rocks and listen to beach music!  A
