Thank you Doc!! #9322856

Rona L. Schwarz March 28, 2011

I agree with Michelle - this would look great on a Texas travel brochure, Jeff! I've never met a real cowboy, but looks can be deceiving - my husband drives a pickup, but he also carries a purse (better known as a man's bag)! He is very fond of his truck, and named her 'Lucille'! #9323150
