    3. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel.

    4. Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway.

    5. You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

    6. You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.

    7. Stores don't have bags, they have sacks.

    8. You see people wear bib overalls at a funerals.

    9. You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

    11. You refer to the capital of Texas as "home of the Longhorns."

    12. It doesn't bother you to use an airport named for a man who died in an airplane crash.

    13. Little Smokies are something you serve only for special occasions.

    14. You go to the lake because you think it is like going to the ocean.

    15. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit.

    16. You know cowpies are not made of beef.

    17. Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.

    18. You have known someone who has had one belt buckle bigger than your fist.

    That's good stuff. I have lots of family in Texas and have visited often to understand where you are coming from. It's a great state.

    In the immortal words of General Phil Sheridan,

    If I owned Hell and Texas, I'd live in Hell and rent out Texas.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Talking Jealousy rears its ugly head

    He was just mad God lives here.

    I figure I might have to move eventually, but I'm never going to Kalifornia if I can help it.

    I figure I could tolerate Arizona or Montana. Heck I'd even try Alaska for a couple of years if the money was there.

    I used to think every place north of the Mason Dixon line was hell on earth, but it sounds like if you have a job lined up already, PA and VT aren't so bad except they've never heard of Dr. Pepper. I'd never go anywhere near the DC area though, not within 100 miles if I could help it. I've been there and that whole part of the country just sucks.

    I don't think so.

    Being a Damn Yankee stationed in Texas during Reconstruction probably influenced his opinion a little bit.

    Texas has a lot goin' for it - it's gun friendly; everything else is secondary.

    Sounds a lot like Missur-ah, I especially like #23..
    23. A Mercedes Benz is not a status symbol. A Ford F350 4x4 is.
    17. Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.
    OR the hunting seasons, a woman that wants to get married in the middle of deer season wants to be an old maid
