They saw my license plate and laughed because they got the humor and that was cool.

ZZ Top. Members born in Houston, Dallas, and Frankston.

Two friends and I ran into Dusty Hill coming out of the Lewis and Coker grocery store on Memorial Drive in Houston back in 1984 or 1985. He parked by the front door and was walking out with a bottle of wine. I want to say his car was a cream colored two seat Cadillac*, but I can't remember after all these years. What does stick in my head was the car had custom emblems on it resembling the Rolls Royce logo, but done with DH for Dusty Hill.

*Something like this http://smclassiccars.com/cadillac/63...-interior.html or this https://car-from-uk.com/sale.php?id=86525

I was in Death Valley in early March so it wasn’t hot. I have a book Death In Death Valley. It will make you think about what not to do.

Has nobody mentioned Lance Armstrong from Plano?
Waylon Jennings was from Littlefield.
Dan Blocker was from O'Donnell, a fact celebrated in O'Donnell to this day.
Willis Alan Ramsey, typically vilfied for having written "Muskrat Love" is from Oak Cliff.
Actress Mireille Enos of "The Killing" is from the Houston area.
Actress Allison Tolman of the Fargo TV show is also from the Houston area.
Buddy Holly was from Lubbock. Mac Davis, too.
Musician and artist Terry Allen, who did some of the conspiracy theory inspiring art for the Denver airport, calls Lubbock home though he probably lives in Santa Fe.

Texas is a big state and there are a lot of famous people from here.

Here's one of the things Terry Allen did for the Denver airport:

I ain't famous, but I was born in Carthage and my dad was a high school football coach there. Being that Carthage was, and still is, a small town, that meant he was famous.

One of the coolest things about being a Texan is you identify yourself as that before anything else e.g. gender,ethnicity, profession etc.
Another cool thing is outerstaters can recognize our flag but other than the bear one for california we have no idea what their states flags look like. Also when you're in Texas you see more state flags and state emblems. It's like when you're in Texas you still have to show you're from Texas. Texas history is a required subject in middle school before you learn about U.S. history. Most any Texan can tell you what the state tree, flower, bird and song is.
ALSO,
Irene Ryan who played Granny on Beverly hillbillies was a Texan.

Granny was a doctor, too. She invented a cure for the common cold. Take a shot of Granny's cold cure and in a week or two, your cold will be gone. She and Trump probably went to the same medical school.

Funny thing is I fly the Texas flag at my house every day of the year that isn't a US holiday or memorial. Then and only then, do I fly an American flag.

Due to that, the American flag I have is from my childhood home in the 1970s and it still looks great. On the other hand, I have to replace the Texas flag about every two years.
