  2. Not realy, saw all I realy need to see last time one came around and I was in school. Things are starting to take on that cool blue tenge tho. We'll talk about an optical illusion. I have been seeing what was a modern art version of a close up of "machete" and just now Ryan's avatar turns to a picture of two nice looking young men. I obviously have been neglecting my coffee.

  12. Been thinking about it. A friends wife served me a cup from one.
  13. One lump and a spot of cream. Or second run on a pot of olong. I'm not predudice. But my first love is coffee, black strong and hot, but hold the French roast and the Colombian.
  14. Desert rat? I resemble that remark! Just give me a squeeze of lemon and poor over ice.
  15. Southerners know how to set a table and greet their friends like family. I am a southwestern boy born to an Okie.
