Re: "Sparky" Urinetoast

My husband once got an electric catfish, and the first thing he did after he
got it home and put it in a tank was take off his sneakers, and ... you
guessed it. "Wow!" He said after the episode, "I guess I won't do that

Another little electrocution story, his dad owned a marina out on Long Beach
Island (30 miles from Atlantic City, folks), and Keith was bringing a boat
in during a thunder storm...CRACK goes the lightening. Up goes the hair. You
know, he really wasn't the same after that. Hmmmmmm

Love, from,
