1. You can properly pronounce:

Corsicana, Palestine, Decatur, Wichita Falls, San Antonio, Burnet,
Boerne, Nacogdoches, Mexia, Waco, Amarillo, Seguin and Waxahachie. 100%. Waco, isnt pronounced "Waco",its pronounced "Whacko" or "Way Coo".

2. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and
look for a funnel. Yes, you step out and say, "Well would you lookie there.".

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

4. You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined

8. Little Smokies are something you serve only for special occasions. Like the Super Bowl, Cowboy, or Rangers game.

10. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit. sometimes you wear shorts under your pants, cold in the morning, hot in the afternoon

11. You know cowpies are not made of beef. Prarie Oysters

12. Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their
Wedding date. get married on a Friday, rest up from the lovin on Saturday, cuz The Boys play on Sunday.

13. You have known someone who has had a belt buckle bigger than your fist. I know someone who has a NAA .22LR revolver in their belt buckle

14. You aren't surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, and bait
All in the same store. Alligator Jacks at Cedar Creek Lake

15. Your "place at the lake" has wheels under it. Not anymore, we stepped up to a concrete slab

16. A Mercedes Benz is not a status symbol; a Ford F350 4x4 is. I sure wish I had one

17. You know everything goes better with Ranch dressin'. agreed, and gravy too

18. You learned how to shoot a gun before you learned how to
multiply. 9x5=45acp

19. You actually understand this and you are "fixin' to" send it to
your friends. is there any other way?

20. Finally, you are 100% Texan if you have ever heard this

Only in Dublin, Texas


Texan and damn proud of it!!

Why would you open carry anyway?

7. You measure distance in minutes.


Some places in west Texas are measured in beer as in "it's a six pack away." A 30 minute drive is roughly three beers.


not as popular as it used to be though

I guess that's a joke. Ha, ha. We only have CHLs; don't have CCWs. We can open carry a knife up to 5" blade length.
