Mary,

Thank you to one of the sweetest most kind ladies I have known since my paid membership in July, 2010. You have always been popular in the forums and I am sure one of the most popular if not the most popular ladies in Indiana.

You got it girl.

God bless,

Leon

Jerry,

Wow!! Hard to articulate my true sentiments. Although I do appreciate your kind remarks, I have read yours, Ray's and several other posters on a regular basis. All of your postsalways boost my spirits and I do love your stories. No one tells them better.

I wish to express thanks to all your wonderful threads. You my friend are the popular one as everything you initiate always draws great interest.

Since it appears the Astros are going to be the doormats of major league baseball, the Rockets look as if they will be eliminated from the playoffs if not tonight then this week so I am ready for the NFL camps to open. I hope the Texans and Cowboys proudly represent our state. I keep hoping for an all Texas Super Bowl but as you may have noticed the first 6 is my age is quickly moving to a 7.

Thank you again for you kind words and thank you for being a special friend on CM.

I pray you are feeling good.

God bless - always,

Leon

Thank you Leon. But YOU are a shining example to all of us. And even though we are close in age....I look up to you!

As for the "ALL TEXAS" Super Bowl; Are you sure you want that? We'd have to root against each other! Besides your Texans have a much better chance than the Dallas Cowboys. And I will always root for them.....as long as they are not playing us! laughing

Kathy,

Hello to the lovely lady from Canada. I appreciate the kind words.

Hope the weather is getting warmer as you all get the type of cold I am not sure I could endure.

Blessings always, Praying hug rose

Eileen,

That is fine. Just your presence here is thanks enough.

No, not all Texans wear white Stetson hats. The ones I know who do wear them are not necessarily the good guys. Takes much more than wearing a hat for a man to be really a man.

I pray life is good to you and for you.

Blessings always, Praying hug rose

Lauren,

Thank you for the kind words. Greatly appreciated and I wish the same to you and yours.

I know a week or longer, you all incurred some severe storms. Hope you came away without any damage to your personal items or family incurring damage. In a matter of minutes, so many people lose their life's belongings.

By the way - I did have fun. This was an especially great birthday.


God bless, Praying hug rose

No truer words spoken Leon. I own a white hat that I rarely wear. Do wear the boots on occasion though

Becki,

You should be proud of your state. I know several people who have visited sites throughout the state and they all gave you all five stars. A little more than five years ago, I travelled to Alabama and attended Mass at the EWTN facility in Irondale. Then, travelled to Hanceville and spent time at the monastery. It is far more beautiful than what you see on TV. Then, travelled to Arkansas and visited some of the Civil War sites in Tennessee. I did not have enough remaining time to visit Kentucky. It has to be a great state. You live there, Ms. Lady Dawn, Bob and another gracious lady no longer on this site - Laura. To be escorted around the state by you all would be great. Someday, I hope I can get there.

Blessing always and thanks again for the birthday wishes. Praying hug rose

Leon

Mary, my brother in Christ to the north (Mesquite's own Jerry) seemed to enjoy his stay last year. Word of caution - if you spoil some of us Texans, then we tend to want it all the time. laughing laughing

You are correct. Kindness begets kindness. I learned that trait from my mother when I was knee-high to a grasshopper. If I did it any other way, she would find a way to arise from her grave and severely admonish me. Maybe I did learn and do something right in life. laughing laughing

Mary, you are part of a great and loving group. Just the friendships you all have adopted from being on this site will last forever. What a great group of people.

By the way, a lady of I know who lives in Lufkin, Texas called me last night to extend her personal birthday wishes. She will turn 93 in July. We were on the phone about 10 minutes. She mentioned she has been ill and wasn't able to communicate very well on Sunday. Lufkin is about 120 miles northeast of Houston. For her to take the time to call me on the phone - well, let's just say this birthday has been very special. She struggled to talk and her daughter from Houston was on her way to stay with her.

Mary, just continue being your kind and generous self and keep folks like me straight in the forums. We all love you.

Blessings always, Praying hug rose

Leon
