Howdy! (Okay, I never say that.) I am a Texan by parentage (4th generation?), birth (Austin), and residence (Houston for 22 years). But I don't feel much like a Texan because I left Texas when I was about 6 and didn't return until I was 30. So I spent most of my youth in other places and never got attached to it (or anywhere). The "true" Texans that I know don't wear cowboy boots (or at least not often), rode to school on a horse ever, have shootin' irons (or not many, anyway), chew 'baccy, or can rope anything. They do have smiles on their faces, have lots of homey stories about family and friends when they were young, and are mighty friendly. A nice to place to hang your hat if you have one (no, I don't).
No cowboy hat? And you don't ride to work on a horse? And your last name is not Ewing? Now I'm very disappointed, VR (I think I know, where you spent those 24 years, but I won't PORT..., er, post it )

Excuse me, Madame Z. My kinders are all reading at 1st grade level, and many (including my granddaughter) are reading at late second grade level. So there. Bleah!

I've been to Texas once!

Even had to change planes there...

Wait, does that mean I've been there twice?

Don't listen to her, Zelda. Those are just the few that haven't yet been eaten by the cockroaches. And please don't worry about the cockroaches either. They have a natural predator, too - snakes. Keeps in control, you see.

Isn't he pretty? I took this shot myself. He makes a beautiful screen saver in the bigger version. In the bigger version you can see great detail.

You wouldn't guess I don't care for snakes, would you?
