    Of course, it is OK.
    Everyone loves to be loved.
    Sorry to hear that you have to live in that hellhole, called Houston.
    I escaped in 1979.

    Thanks satellitedriver! I actually enjoy Houston. I was born in Jacksonville, Fl...but came to Houston in 83' when I was 5...went back to Florida from 02 til '05 and have been back here since...I will say it was frustrating waiting for the cool front to finally come in!

    Cool Front? :happy2:
    I was raised in a home that had no A/C.
    No school I ever attended-(until I went to U of H) had A/C.
    Little wonder that Houston was the most air conditioned city in the USA in the sixties.
    Freakin' humidity.
    Also, it was the murder capital of the world in the 60's.
    I will say that I miss the museums, music and food.

    More,
    that was a gimmick introduced to the public, in the movie "Urban Cowboys".
    All that was there were pool tables and a punch bag machine.
    In my ill spent youth, I spent many a night at Gilley's, before the movie was made.
    The men's bathroom did not have a roof and there was just an old bathtub piss trough.
    Movie contract came along and a mysterious fire destroyed the exact point of the bathrooms.
    Walla, presto changeo !!!!!
    New bathrooms and all kinda fancy machinery appeared.
    The movie was -( and history)- made.
    In a quirky twist of fate, I moved to North East Texas to work in a coal mine.
    A woman that worked in the warehouse was the Mother of the man that the movie was based upon.
    We had some great conversations.
