Nobody uses Kermit in Texas. Nobody.

I Did take Kermit up to OS, so JRA may be correct. The lady at the espresso stand likes Kermit very much.

I am so pleased that Kermit no longer channels me, but rather speaks for himself more often.

Who is the green elephant? Does he/she belong to you in OS?

The green elephant resides along one of the bike routes that run from my house to the "central business district." I do not know the owner, but it is a pretty cool topiary.
