It caught me off guard! Not once, but twice! [:D] I'm a transplant, but I take comfort knowing a great majority of the defenders of the Alamo were transplants too. I was on the phone working with a large client, can't say who but it's a good bet you have spent at least one night under their roof as a guest, when a fella asked me where I was located. I told him I'm in Austin, and he replied "I knew you weren't from around here" (he is located in Braintree, MA, and they are normaly serviced by our facility in Frazer, PA) " because your polite and way too helpful. Thanks [b]Tex[/b]!". I was dumbfounded. I couldn't believe my ears. About 90 minutes later my phone rings, and I answered, "Network Ops, this is David, how can I help you?". It's was the same fella. "[b]Tex[/b]! I didn't think those people would ever get me in touch with you. I was wondering if you could tell me..." I couldn't help it, I started chuckling. He wasn't being a smartass about it so I guess it was a complement of sorts.

Hmmm...if you live in Texas, and they call you "Tex", I wonder what they'd call me from M[red]ass[/red]achusetts?..... [:D]

Yep- sad to say, but the liberals have overtaken this once-great state like a phage...

The husbands are probably charter members of Stop Handgun Violence (local gun grabbers...) My misfortune is your gain- you are better off without them.

If somebody ever put a cowboy hat on my head, I'd be punching down the crown and cocking up the sides to make it into a Minuteman's tricorn hat (this is known as "Yankee reflex" [:D]).....

Called that once by someone with a Southern Accent. But the words "nice shooting" went before it. Dunno if it 1.was a friend of mine plinking some rich kid in the nuts with a BB gun as he was turning to face him. 2. Me nailing a no parking sign with a red rider at at least a forty five degree angle from a second story window. Or 3. A retired Marine Corps Sniper I know. Turning around in his chair, putting his left arm over his right shoulder, and shooting me in the calf with his own BB pistol as I was running.* *Stupid me only being a white belt, now that I'm approaching red belt, an ultimatum. "Plink me with that. I dive over this table, tackle you, and pinch a nerve complex on your inner thigh." [}:)]
