Now I feel better, I thought I might miss it.
So the big plan is to be ridding all of us?
If the plan IS to get rid of everyone on the train, and we are suddenly without Matt, I call dibs on Wecatchum. W engine and everything.
On the other hand, maybe the plan is to rid everyone on the train of something in their lives. I still call dibs on Wecatchum. Matt, I promise to take good care of her, and make sure she is out of the boathouse often.
I hear the train a comin’
It’s rollin’ ’round the bend,
And I ain’t seen the sunshine
Since, I don’t know when
I’m stuck in Folsom Prison
And time keeps draggin’ on
But that train keeps a-rollin’
On down to San Antone
When I was just a baby
My Mama told me, “Son
Always be a good boy
Don’t ever play with guns, ”
But I shot a man in Reno
Just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowin’
I hang my head and cry
I wonder if Johnny had a BLACK Sons of Varnish shirt
Thanks for the update Matt, looking forward to seeing everyone there
I’m disappointed, only one misspelled word…
