What are now ‘old friends’ came to town today. I got a call on my cell phone around 2:00 p.m. asking where in the hell I was. It was my friends from the Carry the Load organization. They are own their way from West Point to Dallas.
In a time of duress, uncertainty, confusion, and lack of leadership, this is a good thing. If you’ve got the spare money, this would be a good place to park it. More than 1,000 people met them in Mt. Pleasant (home of Ray Price) and they marched on to Mt. Vernon (home of Don Meredith) where more people await with smoked meats and good grub, as well as a great big welcome mat.
