Just some of the reasons I'm proud to be a Texan!   Only in Texas   This is a must read for all Texans, used-to-be Texans, adopted Texans or wanna-be Texans:   Just Texas

Abilene. Dallas, Austin and Houston don't qualify as Texas anymore. Too many yankees, liberals and foreigners in those locales.

A meet on some property in the Houston area would be great. Maybe a pit?   Someone step up. I don't own property or this would already have been done!

Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about folks from Texas


If someone in a Lowe's store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Texas ;


If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Texas ;


If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Texas ;


If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of Dallas for the weekend, you may live in Texas ;


If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Texas ;


If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Texas ;


If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Texas ;


If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Texas ;


If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph --you're going 80 and everybody's passing you, you may live in Texas ;


If you find 60 degrees 'a little chilly,' you may live in Texas ;


If you actually understand these jokes, and share them with all your Texas friends, you definitely live in Texas .
