Texas is a melting pot of people and cultures. Not everybody twangs in Texas! Yes there are some areas of Texas I don’t know what the heck they are saying And I’m aware we are full of ourselves with crazy pride and everything in bigger in Texas . And Texas is the best and we can’t drive in snow!

Itís suppose to be an armadillo but it could be a doodlebug. Once in awhile I go down to Laredo and get flower pots and other cheap Mexican imports. After I took the pic I was thinking is that suppose to be?

Here I sit in Southeast Texas. Woke up late, went for a bike ride, ate a ham & swiss sammich, mowed the grass and beat the rain by 5 minutes. Now I'm bored out of my gourd sipping on whiskey and water.

I still need to purchase a refrigerator. I guess I look at F.B. marketplace, since it was suggested by a friend.

It took me months to be able to understand the accent when I moved to Texas. They couldn't understand me either to be fair, it sue was confusing.
