MrBill: I love that guy! Russ If you love that guy, multiply his personality and excitement times five and I give you my friend Gunsmoke. Two weeks ago, a scene at the nicest steakhouse in SA was way more intense then the cigar guy. GS got so excited and verbal that he stood on his chair and preached to the patrons. Give that man a few of his favorite libations, and he will tell you how the cow ate the cabbage. You will not win. He commands the room. He will not give up until everybody gives in. It's freaking amazing. I've seen it happen hundreds of times over a thirty year friendship. I've learned just to listen and agree. One table didn't take a liking to his methods or his political beliefs. He walked over and stood on their table and began his spill on life and character. He carried his double porterhouse steak in his hand. Every minute or so he would take a huge bite out of it between his speech. It was priceless. He got a standing ovation from most of the patrons while we were being escorted out.
