Thank you Sir!
I love me some "Bum-isms" A great one is gone. There'll never be another one like him.
I'm so glad I purchased a signed copy of the book TC turned us onto last summer. I'm looking at it in the bookshelf now. Need to read it again.
A great Texas legend that will be truly missed.
RIP Great One.
