No worries, bro! Your expression made it sound like you knew for fact instead of your belief!

That was my concern with your statement!

I would never have guessed your primary language wasn't English!

Well, to keep this thread going for such a great song and one of my favorites since I was a kid, back in the mid 60's we used to go fishing
off the piers by the Ferry Building and many a wharf rat used to come up to us and talk to us and try to get some of the fish we caught.
Some of them were pretty f**d up and listening to them and making sense of what they were talking about was a challenge.
I like to think that's what is going on when August West is talking -- This song always takes me back to Pier 14 (burned down) or Muni Pier
as a kid....I love it.
