I think it was "Mexico Way".... but if we aren't careful....he may stop in White Settlement and Houston on the way......

You know how those Okies are.....mama has to ween them off their Rugers before they can have a pacifier. .....lol...

And to quote Curly Joe in 'Tombstone'....."Don't mind him. .he's just drunk. ...ha ha...."
