    Dick Gimble is SON of Johnny Gimble, King of the Western Swing. I was able to meet Johnny once and he was a very nice and friendly person. Dick had a daughter that i was at school with but i don't think i ever got to meet John. I was in waco from 2001 to late 2004 then moved to Florida

    I was there from June or July 2000 till Feb. 01. I'm just an hour away now, and still go over there often.

    Nope, and it looks like the state may finally put a loop in around us. The old folks are pissed :D

    As far as I know, yes. We'll have to wait and see if it ever comes about though. Heaven knows we need it :rollno:

    Maybe they could just build an overpass, so you don't have to see Corsicana at all.:D (I lived there for a while, back in the 1980s, so I think I've earned the right to poke fun.)

    I live in Savannah off 380, but I tell people I live in Denton, but most my friends tell me it might as well be Oklahoma when they drive up here from the city.

    I go to UNT. Home of the best Jazz student musicians in the country! Is that even debatable?

    Here's all my Texas cred:
    born- San Antonio
    elementary- Katy
    -moved to Oklahoma (I know, but it's not that bad)
    After college attempt (#1)- lived twice in Houston (in montrose and off of FM1960)
    currently- In @Denton doing college attempt (#2) at UNT... go Mean Green!


    and yes..that's not water in Galveston Bay its lighter fluid.

    guns... the other things texans love (besides bass guitars)

    i used to work at the blockbuster/wherehouse music by northline mall. which (for those who know h-town) is pretty rough. i'm talking you could get mugged or discover your car on blocks in the parking lot if you didn't watch it.

    so.. i saw a lot of stuff, and you basically felt a bit safer walking to your car or getting gas at night if you had a bit of 'protection'.

    so you better believe i'm packin' , but unlike a lot of my fellow texans, i am happy and i don't need 50 machine guns or a militia bunker, just a 357 (and a good p-bass) and i am happy.
