Mr. Christman has always been fascinated by word play and word games and this interest clearly shows in this humorous treatment of homonyms.
Bob Christman retired from the hectic world of TV production in 1994. He and his wife of forty-five years, Marie, moved from Burbank, California to Deadwood, South Dakota in 2000 and are "enjoying the hell out of it!"
