I don't want to say I'm old - but sometimes in the morning my first thought when I look in the mirror is "Damn, Dad came back from the Beyond!"

I don't remember LeBaron, but I do remember Dandy Don hitting Bullet Bob in full stride, and all the greats since then.

I was born in East Texas, I spent 20 years as an Air Force officer with bad eyes - which meant I didn't fly, but I had a good career. I came back to the pine woods in 1998.

I pride myself on being contradictory. I am a God fearing agnostic, I have never used illegal drugs (not counting alcohol consumed before turning 21) and believe marijuana should be legalized. I firmly believe in marriage, which is why I'm on my fourth one (but third wife). I believe in law and order, but think we have way too many laws.

I'm also an Aggie. Which brings up the question of why Aggies don't eat M&Ms.

Well, duh - they are too hard to peel.
