REUNITED at last...

It was so good to see Preacher's wife yesterday when I flew in from Paris (Texas that is). She had just returned home from her long trip to Arizona with her "Sisters On The Fly". I parked her trailer, unpacked my bags, sat down and viewed all her pictures, and then we went out an enjoyed dinner. What a nice reunion after a short 12 days. I have been accused of being too romantic. I don't care what anybody says, it is wonderful to still be in love with the 16 year old girl you married. From time to time people ask, "what makes for a long, loving marriage?" I am not totally sure. But I will admit things got really good after I quit having to be RIGHT. I immediately discovered HAPPINESS. Anyway my experience validates the old adage: I had rather be HAPPY than RIGHT. It worked for me.

Hey Tex,
So,SonofaPreacher, has the better perspective here wouldn't you agree? Then again, you were poking a little fun at the situation.
I would have taken issue if he'd stated the adage: "Ain't nobody happy if Mama ain't happy!" Then the proper response might sound something like "Mama needs to get over herself." Or in Christian-nese (Over Her flesh.).
But to serve the woman of your heart/life or anyone for that matter takes things to a higher level.
Well, I've come to expect some pretty straight shooten from SonofaPreacher. Plain old Horse sense... Yeppers.
