Mensagem:  Did you guys watch the old TV series "Maverick"?  It was about a gambler, his brother, and his cousin.  They were gamblers in the Old West (USA) around 1875-1890.  Perhaps you saw the movie based on the series.  It came out about 1995. 

I loved the sayings of Maverick's father, "my old pappy."  I found  the following on the Internet:

Bret: Waco, I've never seen a man do so many things wrong. Have you ever been in a gulf hurricane?
Waco Williams: Nope.

Waco Williams: That sounds like pretty good advice for trees.
Bret: They live a long time.
