THINGS I LEARNED FROM BEING IN TEXAS

Armadillos sleep in the middle of the road
with their feet in the air.

There are 5,000 types of snakes on earth and 4 ,998 live in Texas .

There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000
live in Texas , plus a couple no
one's seen before.

'Twiced' is a word.

People actually grow and eat okra

'Fixinto' is one word.


There is no such thing as 'lunch.'
There is only dinner and then supper.

Iced tea is appropriate for all meals and you
start drinking it when you're two. We do like a little
tea with our sugar!

'Backwards and forwards' means I know
everything about you!

Djeet is actually a phrase meaning 'Did you eat?'

You don't have to wear a watch because it
doesn't matter what time it is. You work until you're done
or it's too dark to see.

You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH them.

You measure distance in hours. Like its 6 hours from Houston to Dallas ...

You'll probably have to switch from 'heat' to
'A/C' in the same day.

'Fix' is a verb. Example: 'I'm fixing to go to
the store.'

You install security lights on your house and
garage and leave both unlocked.


Yes, Friday night high school football games is serious football!


You carry jumper cables in your car . . ..
for your OWN car.

There are only four spices: salt, pepper,
Tabasco and ketchup.

The local papers cover national and
international news on one page, but require 6 pages for local gossip and sports..

100 degrees Fahrenheit is 'a little warm.'

We have four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer,
still Summer and Christmas.

Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past time
known as 'goin' to Wally-World.'

A cool snap (below 70 degrees) is good
pinto-bean weather.

A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola or
pop. .. . . it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor. Example:
'What kind a coke you want?'

Fried catfish is the other white meat.

We don't need no stinking driver's ed . .. ...
if our mama says we can drive, we can drive.


EVERYONE can't be from Texas .
You might say it's a gift from God!


And the most important thing we learn growing up in TEXAS is...
IN GOD WE TRUST

In the morning (about 8:00) all those in costumes assembled at a nearby park in Boston, Massachusetts. The people (including me) formed into a long line (4 abreast) to march through Boston. The pictures below 'kinda show what the parade looked like.
