News from Possum Waller

Buffy stopped by the other day. I know not really news worthy. But
she is a study that is for sure. I hav onserved her for a long time, she
what I (and others) call a "Drama Queen". Not that she knows what
that is and wouldnt change it if she did. Not happy unless she is
about someone or overreacting about some resnt event. She needs to
wear a shirt that says "run, save yourself". But then again it is a
of amusement, you can always tell her something like, "did ya hear that
the new wider woman has been sleeping with that preacher", just deny any
names and she will take it from there.

Take my wife...please
My wife and I went to a hotel where we got a waterbed. My wife called
it the Dead Sea.
