"That first day everything went wrong. Clippers fell apart. Clippers fell over and he was shearing his two to my one. I got excited and so while I was eating during dinner I said, 'Bill you need to go down there and get on the ball.' So I did and I shoar' for him for years . Then he told somebody else and that party told somebody else and then the ball starts turning. It's way around the world. 'Self-advertising.' No advertisement what so ever.
