I'm going to follow my wife's lead (she writes the Preppy Girl Guide) and post an explanation of my web name and blog title:
Size 15 is my shoe size.
Galoot is a nickname given to me by Dad.
The Hoot Page is something Mike Watt (Minutemen bass player) created for his own website. Hopefully he won't mind. Plus Hoot rhymes with Galoot.
There you go!
