Although Thom has been nagging me for weeks — months even — about joining Flash 55, every Friday catches me unprepared. This week however, Dr. John’s passing has focused my thoughts on the things I am going to miss about him. I know not one of you will be surprised to hear that I am going to miss his horrible puns.
