    Default Texas!!

    I have to be brief (Ha! I can hear the crowd roar in appreciation! )

    Texas has trees & friendly people. Really looking forward to training today. Met Howard, Chylo (as nice as I thought he'd be!), his fiance & a few other folks. Finny grew up in 2 months & looks like a big dog now.

    Off to play with dogs & be vewy, vewy quiet & listen & learn!!

    Miriam, Keep an eye on a young dog named Money. If you have a camera, can you snap some pictures of him? Thank and have fun, Mike

    Don't eat the Jalipino Peppers!

    Have a good time.

    What a NICE dog!! Will definitely snap some pictures for you. I accidently brought my old camera that takes film as opposed to the digital, so Howard is loaning me his. I'm not as familiar w/ it as mine, but I'll get some pics for sure.

    This has been a real treat so far & RTF is taking a back seat to actually training!!

    The landowner is the nicest man & it's a pleasure to watch Chylo train.

    You can leave the bored, unaffected look at home when you come down here because people smile, say "Good Morning" & open doors for you.

    Going to eat Mexican food before I go back, but last night was Italian (very good actually). The waitress was new & couldn't pronounce or explain anything on the menu. When she dropped a fork she kicked it all the way back to the kitchen It was good entertainment value after a long day!

    Damn Yankee Regards-

    Miriam, we seem to take our hospitality for granted. everytime i meet someone here who is visiting or has recently moved here our hospitality is typically the first thing they mention.

    Must have a chicken fried steak with white gravy at someplace that knows how to do it right before you leave!

    And forgive me, I came in late, where in Texas are you?
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.
