    I have to be the first to say this, but how many wives do you have Robert?

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Really neat x 25. Everyone should love them!

    Jim Krager asked, "I have to be the first to say this, but how many wives do you have Robert?"

    Therefore I have to ask, Do the wives get to make their own choice or do they get them in a package and take whatever candle holder is inside?

    Yeah, I know, that's why they don't send donkeys to school.

    Enjoy,
