Another B52 tale

Happy Saturday! I hope your 2022 is going well.

The Mallard Malady

I have a pretty good memory. At least, I think I do. I suppose I’ll never know for sure since, if I’ve forgotten something, I wouldn’t actually be aware that I don’t remember it. But, other people have expressed surprise at the things that I remember. I remember the names of guys I used to
