No regrets heah.......and NO black bands.....simply GOOD RIDDANCE. Condolences for Fs (aka Leona). Who knows, ole Leona may find it easier to persuade HC's GED educated replacement to continue providing her with free heating oil each winter. Can't help but ponder.....how many fools will, or have, used Castro's (Cuba's) fine medical services for cancer treatment. My guess is ole Hugo would still be alive, and well, had he been treated in Houston. How long has it been since you and Leona has had a glimpse of the sun? Bettah put some D-3 in the cauldron. Other than being A LITTLE breezy, the weathah down heah is purt neah perfect for this time of year. CTS. TTFN.
I miss my friend FS. I wish there was more exchange between us. Last
exchange was in January sometime. I miss broom riding with my girl. Anyways...only reporting the news. I wish there was more time to keep up with airline business. Kind of weird but on days miss the smell of jet fuel in the mornings. It's interesting to hear from friends of all majors on merger mania. Sounds like for every merger the smaller carrier is running the show. That is of course second hand information. It is interesting.

Hope the ole gurl is OK. It takes a lot of oil to heat 4,600 sq. ft......and Mothah Naytcha has not been kind to some parts of the country this year. Just FYI.

Ole Jet says: "You evah seen a crumpled up $20 bill........?"

Cowboy says: "No......."

Jet reached in her panties, pulls out a twenty and shows it to Cowboy.

Jet says: "You evah seen a crumpled $50 bill.......?"

Cowboy says: "No........"

Jet shows him a crumpled fifty note from the same place.

Ole Jet says: "You evah seen a crumpled up $40,000 bill.........?"

Cowboy says: "No...."

Jet says: "Take a quick look in the garage."

It's that pesky union labor and benefits thang. The biggees always seem to let it get out of control and destroy their chances of surviving in the highly competitive market place. CTS.

These three very old looking men at the old folks home were talking, one says; "When I was young my father told me that if I wanted to live a long time, not to drink, smoke, or fool around with women. That is what I have done. I am 83 and still feel young". The second one more slowly said that he too had been told the same thing by his father and he also had heeded his father's warning. "And I am 87 and still feel young". The third one said: "It was just the opposite with me, my father told me if I wanted to have fun in life, to drink, smoke, and fool around with women. That is what I have always done, and I still feel young." How old are you asked the other two? "I'm getting on to 22" was the reply.

Yeah well it is allergy season across Texas! So is "Gunsmoke" your new moniker? Is it in reference to that old TV show or your fondness of the NRA? Just curious.

I appreciate the NRA defending the 2nd Amendment; and looking out for our rights under that amendment to the US Constitution. I nevah did jine the NRA, however. Always thot it was a small conflict of interest, ya know. How's gestation? TTFN.

Hey Slim......have you registered your pressure cooker? CTS. Hope you escaped serious injury during the explosions. If ultra liberals would just stop harboring Islamic Muslim terrorists (the enemy) your city might well be somewhat safer. No offense, ya heah. We be dryin' out down heah, but all that rain was great. Ole Jet probably floated down stream. TTFN.

LOL....like there is no extremists in Texas. Seem to remember a few plots being foiled. We went from snowsuits to swimsuits in two days. Kind of confusing on the body. There are bad people that walk among us daily. How is the Cessna flying these days. Is Untied being nice to you? Your words not mine....TTFN.

You are right.....bad is definitely among us.....hardly disguised, but our govt is broken and unable to detect, or respond, to the threat. My stuff is flying as promised; and everybody is being unusually nice. It's A/C weather down here in this gorgeous hill country. Fees like I died and landed in the Promised Land. Retirement is great.....so the saying goes. Ole Fs surely has been quiet as of late. Be safe, use sun screen, enjoy what freedoms remain; and by all means, clean that 20 ga. before some bureaucrat seizes it. TTFN
