Easy as ABC…

  1. I had to quit reading after T. The tears would not allow me to see the words. T is ALWAYS for Texas! Tolkien REALLY?? Over Texas? Who are you? Tolkien? I may not have cried if you would have used H for Home (maybe) but Tolkien???? 😭. Willie too hangs his head in shame. 😔. You’ve lost the necklace privilege Ann will agree put it in the mail addressed to me. Tolkien. 😭

    1. It was a bit hard to understand you through the tears, but I think you said that I’m a GENIUS because OF COURSE TEXAS IS THE NON-NEGOTIABLE choice and so I took a moment to share something NOBODY would have expected. As if any thing could actually come before Texas…

      In thanks of thinking I’m a genius, I’ll leave you with this 😘😘
