But as I think more about now's not all I thought that was pretty cool that they gave it a try to do something or something was doing. That's good. I mean, my parents never call. So before that, and they still don't go all my dad tries, but he's not, but he likes it. He plays like three or four times a year. He could probably get some lessons from someone. Yeah. I don't.
