  1. I am looking for some pictures from the 1989 Military Finals Rodeo in San Antonio, Texas. My Husband rode bulls in that rodeo and I am trying to find any photos of him. He still has the Rule Book from that rodeo and Mr. Borrelli actually signed it. If you could please give me some help locating any one who took pictures of that rodeo I would be honored by the help. My husbands name is Eric A Atkinson. Thank you for your time. Sandra

  2. Sonny, I was informed by Shari Farrington on my HOA issue and she is the procedures to how to get my House Representative to create a House Bill for HOA Board Term Limits. Shari, suggested me to call my House Representative and my State Senator to create this bill.

    As you know from our conversations, our homeowners are in need for this to be done. My email: bpape63137@aol.com

  3. Sonny,
    There’s a sentence in there that was to be erased but, it looks like it was not.
    Instead of “and she is the procedures to how to get my House Representatives to create a House Bill for HOA Board Term Limits.
    “Shari informed me what to do.”
