    Yeah chrissy,

    My favorite saying here is, This BUDS for you. LMAO
    One of my favorite skits by them was BoB on the game show. They asked him, What's your name. He says, Wait a minute, don't tell me. I knew when I came in here. It starts with a B -- it ends with a B. Ten seconds Bob.

    Hey dazzle,
    I hope you don't mind, but I've been having some fun with your troll. Still in the " Great State of Texas ", and have been seeing all kinds of new things. I never realized the roadrunner was such a small bird. I guess i watched too much roadrunner and coyote when I was young.

      Hey to you bobcat, is this a variation of the (iah)? We don't see a lot of the wildlife in my city but in others areas it is right in your face, which I of course love. I haven't seen a roadrunner in a long time but the Native Americans consider it good luck if you encounter one. I've often been up close and personal with coyotes, javelinas, and bobcats.

    Hi banasy, Chrissy, bobcat2u, and classy dazzle, just finished reading all the posts.
    I also just finished printing out the economic policies of Fmr. Pres. Bush.
    Interesting facts: Did ya know our unemployment rate was 7.8 when he left office? and now it is about 8.3. How come noone was crying about it when Bush was in office?
    Did ya know: That the %of GDP in 2001 was 1.4%, 2002 was 3.9%, in 2005 it was 4.3%, in 2008 when he left it was 6.8%.
