You're safe for now, but with a little age and a few more increases in your lease price and you will qualify.

I was an impressionable child during the Reagan years and my dad used to cure steelhead eggs with borax. Double goodness.

I grew up watching the reruns. Last year on the way to Yosemite we drove through Borax and I wanted to stop and see if we could tour where the 20 team Borax is mined, but we was pressed for time

I didnít know there was a show, but I use borax to save hides that get a little bit green, and also for Damascus welding flux.

I saved $100 bobcat skin from rotting one time with borax. The fur buyer was impressed, because he knew what I had done and knew I did it right.

Remember it. One about horses spent half the time flying while racing, dog howling because it's owner died kinda haunts me to this day.
Saw one the other day about Judge Roy Bean.

Gee and haw - Wikipediaen.wikipedia.org

Gee and haw are voice commands for mules to turn right or left. respectively.


Watched many of the original 1st run episodes, and still watching them. And don't forget Highway Patrol, with Broderick Crawford.
