You Know You Are a Texan When....

I was born and raised (reared) in Kentucky, but have lived more years in other places than I did in Kentucky. So, although I am not a Texan by birth, there is something about Texas that truly appeals to this wanderer's heart and soul. Maybe it is because it is BIG and I feel less "crowded" there than anywhere else on earth. At any rate, wanted to share a bit of Texas humor with you.

You know you are a Texan when.... only know five spices: salt, pepper, Ranch dressing, BBQ sauce, and ketchup.

...the mosquitoes have landing lights.´ve taken your kids trick-or-treating when it was 90 degrees outside.

...the local paper covers national and international headlines on two pages, but requires six pages for local sports. can (and do) write a check at Dairy Queen for two Hunger-Busters and fries.

...the most effective mosquito repellent is a shotgun. think the start of Deer Season is a national holiday. know which leaves make good toilet paper.

...the major county fund-raiser isn´t bingo - it´s sausage making. find 70 degrees Fahrenheit a little chilly. attend a formal event in your best clothes, your finest jewelry, and your Cowboy Boots. know four seasons - Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Deer Season. actually understood this post and got a good laugh out of it.

I'm not from Texas, but still got a good laugh! Most of those fit for right here in Georgia too! Funny!

I laughed out loud. Texans are so much fun to make fun of, aren't they? But Texas is so bigger than life that we can take it.

I love Texas, well, maybe not all of the rednecks, but as a whole.
