Good Morning sweet sister. I was just thinking of the day that the 4 of us got together at your house to watch OU play Texas. Of course we whipped their butts. That game started at 11 am. After it we took you guys tv outside and watched all the games fir the rest of that day. That had always been a good memory for me.
No matter what we were doing we always had a great time together. Love you. Billie
