I saw your story on Texas Country Reporter and was more than delighted with your music. I don't have an adjective to describe it. You are truly gifted. I seldom order CD's etc.,but plan to order some of yours. I hope you are getting better each day. Rehab is not easy but I have the feeling you are doing an excellent job.
God Bless.

I just ordered the Best of Texas Country Reporter and was watching disc one when Bob visited you in Petersburg. After hearing that segment, I had to look you up on the internet and I plan to order some of your CDs, but I didn't know about your accident and your road to recovery. My prayers for you and your family and for God's hand to continue to touch your life. Your music is quite inspirational, and your life story is also inspirational. You are typical of what I call the "true Texan"... you have grit, and you have soul. From a displaced Texan currently in Ohio because of my wife's mother... why else would I be outside Texas?? Please continue your progress and thank you for sharing your gift with the rest of us !!

#6 Aug 4, 2013 is an honest and genuine online pharmacy. We were not sure at first because this was our first order of generic medication from this pharmacy. Although it takes a bit long because it got stuck with custom, we are completely sastisfied with this online pharmacy.
You won't be disappointed with them. Their customer service is great too although they need to improve their phone system a bit more. If you need to call them just be sure to call during their working hours. Other than that we highly and sincerely recommend this online pharmacy to everyone.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
