He met her on his way through town while driving a truck. She worked at a bank and he needed to cash a check. They fell in love and the rest is history. They are finally together again.

He lied about his age to get in.

3 things he ALWAYS had with him.. his hat, coat and a cigar... his pocket knife is in his pants of course!
