jesus man, that is like "out there". In that part of Texas, the men are men, and the sheep are scared. Stay in the room, Shane, stay in the room. I'd hate to see you get Jaspered.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

yeah, but they chop the trunks out and make them into pickups, but I know he'll be attracted to them, the cow horns on the hood can be "kewl".

Good story, but never let her hear you call her the "current wife."

I can't go with "Last" because that could be misconstrued as "previous" or "hopefully last". "Final" has a sound of sad resignation associated with it. "Most recent" sounds as if I have been choosing from a Whitman's Sampler, NOT a good idea. That leaves me with "Contractually bound" which, while accurate doesn't fit very well on a Valentines Day card.

I think Wifie is safe.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

As written, sure. When spoken, however, it conjures images of wives A, B, C and D and leaves the door open for wife F.

Hey,
My pal Buddy has a '76 Eldorado convertible that needs the white interior door panels. He described it as the center section, with the window controls.

Where do he get some of those?
