Texas Style

Let me clear up a few misconceptions about Texans.

1) We do NOT attend family reunions to find husbands (2nd cousins do not count, everyone knows that).
2) We are not slow...we are thoughtful.
3) We do not have an accent...everyone else does.
4) We do not all carry guns...sometimes we leave them at home.
5) We do not all vote Republican...sometimes we vote Independant.
6) Not everything is BIG...just the important things.

We have given the world Buddy Holly, Janis Joplin, Willie Nelson, Tina Turner, Beyonce, and ZZ Top.

We have given birth to Matthew McConaughey, Tommy Lee Jones, Steve Martin, Billy Bob Thorton, Dennis Quaid, Randy Quaid, Carol Burnett, Farah Fawcett, and George Foreman. 

Who could kick your butt and cook a steak at the same time!
The list is endless.

We are loud, funny, and sometimes obnoxious but we are loyal to a fault.  We believe in pride of self, and pride of country.  We are the home of the last true American Cowboy.

Who still ride today.

Long Live Texas.


  1. I suddenly have the urge to watch a Friday Night Lights marathon!

  2. LOL! Did I go a little overboard? I got on a roll and had a hard time stopping.

  3. This was fun. Especially loved #4. Floridians are big on that one too.

    Made me break out singing The Yellow Rose of Texas!

  4. Couldn't have said it better myself (really, I couldn't). : )

    Texans rock!

  5. This was great. I love all those people Texas birthed. Great fun. BTW, I take my steak rare and prefer not having my butt kicked ;)

  6. Terry: Florida rocks too! Ernest Hemingway was from Florida.

    Kimberly: Thank you, we should not take for granted the awesomeness that is Texas. ha I was feeling wayyy patriotic today.

    T.Anne: Tell it to George, sister. I likes my steaks rare too, hold the butt

  7. Who started you off? lol!

    My neighbour is Texan (yeah, all the way in Japan). She doesn't fit any of the stereotypes. That's great, I worked with a "real" Texan once, and I never want to do it again.

  8. Linguista: I don't know! I was starting to be funny...then I escalated...its that moody writer

  9. Marsha,

    TOTALLY AWESOME and as a fellow Texan, I agree. Although, I didn't realize everybody else had the accent. That's really cool. (Yes, I do sound Southern when I talk, in case anyone was wondering).

    You forgot "Bigger and better" :-)


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
