Remembering my instructor today with a grin

Something you never seen before.

"Benny, how would you use these words in a sentence?"
1. Tenacious--Bepor you go out, put your tenacious on.
2. Deposit--Call de plahmer. Deposit is leaking.
3. Splat--Oh my goodness, my…

Prayers go to GM Max Pallen, Joseph, Jordan and Family.
