yeah but not longview! boring as shit and ten years behind the rest of the country...
Hey ,Longview ,try Henderson They roll up the streets at 9:00, we have a small group of old rods but no place to go
you gotta slow wayyyy down in Refugio, ...huge speed trap.
I remember ordering Shiner at a bar in Houston 20 something years ago, and the bartender telling me "this ain't A&M, we don't serve Shiner"
Now you can get it in most resteraunt's.
Peanuts only go in a Coke, or diet Coke, no real Texas drink's Pepsi.
I have enjoyed reading the comments!!
Now can a Yankee make a comment?
I was born in Montana, and was stationed at Fort Hood for 3 years, I met my wife in Austin, and then we moved to San Antonio. We lived there for 2 years, then my son Was born in San Antonio. I now live in Washington where it rains all the time. I try to get back down here whenever the Army lets me!!!
My 2 cents
DR Pepper and Big Red sucks!
Texas BBQ can't be beat.
Shiner Beer and Longhorn Football Kicks ASS!
I freaking love both Dr. Pepper and Big Red. I will drink coke, would rather die than have freaking Pepsi.
You know, I had no idea about Lone Star Beers ownership change. I used to drink it all the time but the last few years I kinda stopped getting it because something seemed off...when did they sell out?
BBQ is only done right in Texas.
Ahhh, Shiner rocks.
I have to have my Tex Mex/Mexican food hit weekly in order to survive.
My relatives from MN have a hard time with that stuff when they come down and they hate Dr. Pepper.
My Alaskan relatives won't even eat anything hot at all.
My wife and her family are from PA, I made the mistake of trying to feed the chili (not the meat soup most yankees eat), I forgot I made it with habanero peppers. I almost felt bad.......almost
My mother was from Missouri. I could never get her to understand that chili wasn't supposed to have beans and corn (yeah,corn) in it.
When we moved down here in '55 she came home from work one day all excited, "These people down here eat okra!!??!!"
When I met wy wife she had never had a cornydog (yes corny), okra, chicken fried steak, greens, and on and on. I still can't figure out what exactly they did eat?
What about fried pork chops, mashed potatoes/gravy and black eyed peas w/jalepenos for New Years. No Crout round here.
My girl just read this entire thread - We were supposed to go see a movie and now shes like "Instead of a movie, lets take the hot rod and go grab a beer and some BBQ" Shes a keeper. . .
Another Texas thing.....though it's more of a DFW thing....Babe's. Best fried chicken (and creamed corn) in the world. Sorgum and biscuits......
Holy crap, you aren't kidding!!!!
Mo, I remember meeting your girl in West, she is definately a keeper-I seem to remember her holding a water bottle to keep the dash dry, right?
And what about Griff's Hamburgers? heart attack in a bag for $5.
Man, it just started raining cats & dogs and the temperature dropped about 20 degrees. Just in the nick of time!
Great! Tornado weather.
Lyle Lovett sang "That's right you're not from Texas. Texas wants you anyway."
He was wrong.
Texas is full and does not want you. It is very hot in the summer (April to October) and there are ice storms in the winter. People are mean and don't like "outsiders" (aka yankees). The women are missing teeth and all over 2 bills. The food is boring and bland. The whole place is just totally overrated. I would move to Kali, New York, or Barryland (Chicago) instead. Don't believe the hype.
"So come on down to Texas, have yourself a ball,
take the kids to Six Flags, and the wife out to the mall.
Have a good vacation, but then don’t hesitate
to point your car back up the road to that outbound interstate."
Don't forget Ann Nicole Smith was from Mexia!!!
Speaking of heart attacks....
Newport, Have you been to Barbec's near white rock lake? They have a chili cheese chicken fried steak...
Did you hear about the Texan drinking at the bar in New York City. The Texan and one of the locals get to talking and hit it off. The Texan gets to bragging about how everything in Texas is bigger and better. Of course the New Yorker keeps coming back with smart comebacks. Suddenly the Texan gets a phone call.
"What!!! Is everything okay? Are you sure? Its a boy!!! Wonderful!!! Is he healthy? Oh great!! Well how much did he way? 28 pounds. Well okay I will see you tomorrow. I love you. Bye."
The New Yorker can't stand it. "Who was that?" He asks.
"My wife just had our first boy."
The New Yorker even more intriqued asks. "You said he weighed 28 pounds!"
"Of course. I told you everything is bigger in Texas."
The New Yorker says "Your lying I want proof."
The Texan tells him he will be back in one week on a business trip and he will bring photos to prove it. One week later the Texas shows up with the pictures, and the New Yorker is floored to see what looks to be the biggest new born baby he has ever seen. He shows everyone in the bar and says look at this 28 pound baby.
The Texan says "No he only weighs 20 pounds now."
"Why?" asks the New Yorker.
The Texan pokes out his chest and says. " Had 'em circumsized!!!!!!!!"
Ahhhh . . . CCCFS!!!
Now that's the ticket!!
Can you get that in NJ or NY??
Me too. That makes three of us....In this day in age we could prolly start a class action law suit against them. I'm gonna sue Crown Royal for makin me married while I'm at it...hahaha.
That is nothing to be proud of
It is the only thing to be proud of from Mexia.
Texas is the place to be! Heat and all....My family came here in 1834 and, well it was a little different then. I think they were rodde'n old wagons at least I'd liek to think so. I just kept the family tradition going.
Chicken fried steak...You bet! Best fried chicken is Babe's in Roanoke.
great place to be.!!!
My moms parents still have the first house my family built in Texas 1892!
Haha - Yep, the 28 sprung a leak during the downpour & her water bottle came in handy. . .
