Yeah, my long con to seduce you to gain ownership of your pool hall fell apart when you decided to sell it... ( ._.)

O_o

Definitely not, and I'm moderately offended that you haven't.

Wow. Just yesterday I asked the Google "How long have dogs been in North America?".

The real question you should ask is which is the better saddle to ride on of those  beasts -- Mexican or Western?
