    A friend recently made the most of his Rita evacuation by taking a small vacation to Waco. He lives in an RV so he was able to take his house with him. Here is one of the pictures that he took during his trip. Even with the humidity and mosquitos, I love this state. Get this in California!:neener: :D

    Great sign! I did a “lets see Texas” road trip vacation a few summers ago and really liked your native state. The weather in southern Texas really appealed to me. When I finally get fed up with cold winters southern Texas is one of the areas I would consider moving to.

    Any state that obligates it's armed citizens to protect life and property during times of disaster is OK in my book! If only i could talk the wife into moving there.:(

    :D

    I'm originally from Arkansas but have been Texas for the last 25 years - about half of my life. Texas is a great state in many ways, though it would add to my happiness if they would add more lanes to I-35E in North Texas!!

    Go Longhorns! (If not playing the Razorbacks)

    I grew up there. I used to go into "Praco" when it was just a humble pawn shop across Waco Drive. That was a long time ago in galazy far, far away...

    Why is Texas so great?

    It's the home of Ziegenbock....never heard of it? your loss.:evil:

    Have you ever been to 6th St. Austin on a Saturday night? You're practically tripping over beautiful and FRIENDLY women. No wonder your wife doesn't like this state...it's full of the prettiest women in the nation.

    Texas encourages firearm ownership...heck...it's practically in our constitution.

    Texas is the birthplace of the American Cowboy....at least legendary.

    Texas is friendly...except Dallas....and uh...Houston.

    Texas has hot hot summers filled with spicy Mexican food and cold cold beer.

    In Texas men drive trucks...not minivans....

    In Texas wearing a cowboy hat and boots will not even attract a second glance...fell free to feel like John Wayne. Try that in Baltimore.

    Texas has the largest live music scene in the U.S. second only to California....but who wants to live there?

    Texas may be Democrat or Republican...but it's always conservative.

    Texas is famous for honkey tonks and church........

    Texas has the best football and BBQ around. Memphis does pretty good, but where do you think that mesquite smoked BBQ comes from?

    Texas is as American as Apple Pie, Mom and the Good the Bad and the Ugly.

    In Texas, white tail deer is considered a natural resource and hunting is an industry.....

    In Texas we make fun of California and always say "New York" with a slight shared but unspoken sense of contempt.:evil: Heck..being from NY is like being an ex-felon in big Tex.....

    There are too many good things to say about Texas to mention here but let me just end this by saying...have you ever seen a gaggle of Texas women?:D

    I think the other side of that sign says "Be a good bunny, buy a gun for your honey" (left over from Easter, they don't change that sign much). I will try to get a photo of it next time I am passing by.

    Just remember, Texas is a horrible place filled with reprobates, mean women, and ugly dogs. It is always burning hot, or freezing cold, and the air stinks. If the allergies don't kill you then the traffic will. ;)

    We already have enough folks who use the phrase "Well in California we didn't do it that way" ... and yes I am kidding, well at least about the women and the weather. :D

    Dallas is not really part of Texas. I have never met one single person that was actually
    "from" Dallas. Everyone I know that lives there moved from out of state.

    There's a place I eat in Ft Worth, all the wait staff wear t-shirts emblazoned with "Life is too short to live in Dallas".

    Please refrain from referring to Dallas as being part of Texas. :evil:

    As for the sign, my brother went to Baylor University in Waco and he bought me a stainless Delta
    Elite for Christmas from that place. He was too lazy to wrap it and it was still in the sack.

    I happen to have been born in Dallas, thank you.

    Although I will admit that it is my least favorite city in Texas.

    Texas, home of the best BBQ, coldest beer, hottest food, most beautiful land, bluest water, best fishing, greatest hunting, largest cockroaches, and largest mosquitos. It is a state of mind and a way of life.

    GOD BLESS TEXAS

    50freak,

    Nothing personal meant. Heck, if we could merge California weather with Texas, I do believe that we'd be dang close to heaven.

    Texas is a State of Mind

    Texans are a lot like New Yorkers (really). Either among the nicest people you'd ever want to meet, or the most 'proctologically challenged' you'd never want to meet. They're all legends intheir own minds.:neener:

    If God had meant Texans to ski, He'da made BS white.

    All in good fun, I love Texas, too (even tho my sister lives in Seabrook). Mike (all hat, no oil) in VA
