alright y'all lets get this thing started. I'm behind enemy lines, and I miss Brazoria, lake jackson, free port, galveston, and houston. Especially Brazoria.


So lets kick this thing off, admit to things you've done before...that only a Texan would do.



When you buy your first pair of boots, wear them all day, and end up sleeping with them on.

well years ago we would drive the backroads drinkin beer and stop to gang piss on a rattler warming itself up on the road.... occasioanally we would stop and shoot the shit out of some inanimate object...


times have sure changed... not much open country these days that would permit such behaviour.

and you know you're a HOUSTONIAN when you're stuck in gridlock traffic on richmond all the way to chimney rock, everyone's going 7 feet every five minutes and during that time of gridlock they all decide that right then and there is the best time to change lanes.

You forget that folks from out of state don't understand the idea of a truck gun, carry gun, back-up gun, etc.

Driving to Dallas and back in a day is no big deal.

BBQ is a food group. So is Mexican food. The other 2 are beer and bacon.

I was drinking beer grilling Cajun catfish on the back porch the other night with police choppers buzzing hitting the nieghborhood with searchlights. (Obviously some bad guys running around )
I went inside, tucked a 1911 in my belt and went back to my beer and my grillin'.

Wife said this was my first true Texas moment....
