    I’ve only lived in Texas a few years but, I guess I’ve just always been a Texan Fred.

    Why did my column sent at 6:12 pm go to this topic when I was under the article “No More bailouts” with video from Perry?????

    Don’t know about that Ma’am, but I responded over there! :D

    This “friends” thing is a twist on something that I heard many years ago. You guessed it! (At least Fred did I’m sure.) Just put Marine in place of Texas!

    Only thing left out was “Best friend, worst enemy.” Forty years later it still makes a whole holler of good sense and wisdom. At least to me it does!

    I would say it’s called a *glitch*… It happens on occasion… Has to be a glitch, no one ever accidentally posts on the wrong thread… Had to be a glitch…
