I thought perhaps, he was a gerontologist, that maybe he did, but he did not.

So I had just been on the lookout for several months, just to see if I saw anything and then The Birmingham News ran a newspaper article that had it on the front page of the paper, and I read the paper, so I was excited, went online, watched the video, was very excited, emailed right away, and was able to purchase one. I was thrilled that I could get one."
