Texas: All the following points are true and I have learned them personally...

Armadillos sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.

Roadrunners don't say "Beep Beep"

There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in Texas.

There are 10,000 types of spiders. 10,001 live in Texas.

Armadillos love to dig holes under tomato plants.

Raccoons will test your crop of melons and let you know when they are ripe.

If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.

Nothing will kill a mesquite tree.

There are valid reasons some people put razor wire around their house.

A tractor is NOT an all-terrain vehicle. They do get stuck.

Texas has 5 seasons:
Spring, Feb 16 to April 15
Summer, April 16 to July 15 (temp 90 to 98 degrees)
Super Summer, July 16 to Sept 10 (temp 100 to 115 degrees)
Summer, Sept. 11 to Oct 1 (temp 90 to 98 degrees)
Fall, Oct 2 to Dec. 1
Winter Dec. 2 to Feb 15

The wind blows at 90 MPH from Oct. 2 until July 15, then it stops totally.

Onced and Twiced are words

Naked is not having clothes on
Neekked is not having clothes on and up to something.

It is not a shopping cart, it is a buggy.

Fire ants consider your flesh as a picnic.

Coldbeer is one word.

Big Hair still exists in Texas

People actually grow and eat Okra.

Texans really don't have an accent.

When the world ends, only cockroaches and mesquite trees will survive.

Green grass DOES burn.

When you live in the country, you don't have to buy a dog. City people drop
them off at your gate in the middle of the night.

The sound of coyotes howling at night only sounds good for the first couple
of weeks.

When a buzzard sits on the fence and stares at you, it's time to go to the

Fixinto is one word.

A tank is a dirt hole in the ground that holds water for irrigation.

Backards and Forards means I know everything about you.

You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it is.

You work until you're done or it's too dark to see.

And the most important thing......There's no place I'd rather be than Texas!

Texans give directions according to landmarks...
"Turn right at the corner where Billy Bob got caught by the ranger doin it in the back of the truck with Sally Mae"

In Texas don't try to have Quickie Sex outside the Fire Ants can read your mind. Mesquite Trees can be killed by Fire, but you might get an Ass Beaten for doing it,( I was 12 an we were just Fuckin around with Fireworks). Red Necks don't like Hippies, and even more when they're tring to pick up their Woman. But I do Love to Vist
