Things I have learned about Texas . . .

Things I have learned about Texas . . .

Armadillos sleep in the middle of the road with all 4 feet in the air.

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

There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live Texas, plus a few
no one has ever seen before.

If it grows, it will stick you. If it crawls, it will bite you!

Nothing will kill a mesquite tree.

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

Onced and twiced are words.

Coldbeer is one word.

People actually grow and eat okra.

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

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

Fix-in-to is one word.

A TANK is a dirt hole that holds water for irrigation, watering the
cows, or swimming

There ain't no such thing as "lunch." There is only dinner and then
there's supper.

Sweetened ice tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking
it when you are two.

Backwards and forwards means I know everything about you.
"Jeet?" is actually a phrase meaning, "Did you eat?"

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.

You know you are from Texas if:

You measure distance in minutes.

You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixin' to go to the store
(note: in the example, "fixin to" is one word).

You install security lights on your house & garage, but leave both
unlocked.

You carry jumper cables for your own car.

You know what "cow tipping" and "snipe hunting" are.

You think everyone from north of Dallas has an accent.

Local papers cover national and international news on one page, but
require six pages to cover Friday night high school football.

You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.

You find 100 degrees a "tad" warm.

You know all four seasons: Almost summer, summer, still summer, and
Christmas.

You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good chili
weather.

A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop....It's a Coke
regardless of brand or flavor.

Re: Things I have learned about Texas . . .

The reason I agree is because I actually sat here and thought about if I actually say and do some of these things and they're accurate. :laughing6:
