Dear Miss Butcher,

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY YA'LL

 

As my dad would say, "I'm of Irish distraction." I'm one of those people who doesn't believe in calling myself anything but an American. I'm an American and proud of the fact.

Ooooooh I just have to tell you, Wayne took me to the boat show out at the coliseum recently. We had a grand time and it was all I could do to keep Wayne from buying a sailboat. Yes, you read me right the first time. He wanted a sailboat and he almost had me convinced that he or we should buy one. He almost got me with the line, "Hey you can sunbathe in the nude out there on the water and no one will see you." I said, He almost had me convinced, the shrewd little nickel-dime lawyer. He...
