    Great stuff! However, you are wrong in one respect: California has a fifth season--street riots.

    Also, you can live in Texas where:

    God painted the sunset burnt orange to tell you where you should go to school.

    He gave us over a quarter of million square miles to keep the Californians and the mid-westerners and the southerners hundreds of miles away from San Antonio.

    Where those foreigners who do show up end up loving the State, if possible, more than those of us whose great-great-great grandparents were born here.

    Where farting and the death penalty are spectator sports, and happen with about the same frequency.

    Where somebody from a trailer park and somebody else from Highland Park can end up best friends and fish together.

    Where the rest of the country sends their condom orders for units a foot long and 3 inches wide--and our factories send them back in boxes marked "Medium."

    And where, long ago, Jesus said to the Aggies: "Just play dumb until I get back."

    God made Tuna blood maroon to tell everyone which school in the state is the best. :D

    Uncle Russ, please answer these three questions for me concerning the three big sports in college. Football, Basketball, Baseball. The questions only refer to the Maroon and Orange teams.

    Who won the football game last year?

    Who went the farthest in the NCAA final four tournament?

    Who went the farthest in the NCAA baseball tournament?

    You should see what Gunsmoke does to Tea Sippers that happen to appear on his boat. It's the funniest thing you will ever see in your life. It's absolutely hilarious. I won't tell you what happens as it is a surprise for all tea-sippers.

    MrBill:I admit you guys prevailed--for one year! :( I have not checked the overall record over the last century for a couple of hours, so I have forgotten that. As for the Maroon and White, I always did think it was appropriate that you guys chose the colors of a diseased liver.

    As for Gunsmoke, if there is something secret that man does, that is more damned outrageous than the stuff he has lay claim to in print, it would scare my sorry old a$$ just thinking about it.

    By the way, you may not have heard yet, but the NCAA just put OU on probation for two years, took away a few scholarships, and forced the land thieves to forfeit 8 or 9 games. Gotta love it. It should remind folks who think chicken wings are the same as prime rib, of those glory days under Barry Switzer when the Ags were doing their imitation of SMU! :)

    Uncle Russ, is your heart in good shape. Can you swim. If so, I could have some fun with you. You seem to have a sense of humor. My Sip trick is the best. At least I think it's funny.

    'Smoke: I have no doubt a bunch of young stud Ags, hopped up on steroids and one year of victories could prevail over a pathetic, greyheaded old man who was chasing their mothers around while their fathers were wondering when their pea-shooters would turn into cannons. Even though I am an old fart, I had a heart scan just as a precaution and that sucker had zero plaque built up in it. And I can swim like a sumbich in salt water. I keep up my skills by watching Jaws before each offshore trip. I'll guarantee that if you give me a compass and a quart bottle of water before you throw me overboard, I'll make either the shore or a rig. Of course what I'm not saying is, that if I ever even shook hands with you beside a swimming pool, I would have an inflatable PFD under my shirt and a PLB inserted where the prisoners in French Guiana kept their cash!:D

    And yes, I do have a sense of humor--I had to develop one the first time I took off my clothes in front a woman.
