^Are you implying Texans are drunks? Not since last night when I was surrounded by Houstonians, Austinites, and Birminghamians have I seen a drunk in the USA. We were all in New Mexico so it don't count. Hee Haw...

Nah, but it looked quite lively. I would have stopped for a beer but I was in a hurry to meet a friend. Most of the punters in there seemed to be Asian or European at a glance. All the Americans in London appeared to be waiting at the theatre by the time I arrived. Bloody tourists everywhere.

So how many of you have seen this building, which resides in the centre of the city I live in?

Usual response upon seeing it for the first time: "It's smaller than I expected...

I drove by it and missed it completely. We got to see Riverwalk and then beat feet out of town just seconds ahead of a flash flood. Seems there was brief shower somewhere nearby.

He's a dedicated family man so that's not likely to happen again 'til he checks into a retirement home.

The last time I had a colon exam the doctor felt so sorry for me that he gave me a reach-around with his forceps.

It is smaller than one imagines. Is there still a liquor store and pawn shop across the street off camera right? This was circa 1974.

Ozzy Osborne saw it and by all accounts he was none too impressed. One of the pigs involved was heard to comment-"It's smaller........."
