When I lived in Texas my boss referred to me as his "token Yankee". I wasn't offended and took it as a compliment. He was a great guy. I asked him one day What do you call a Yankee after he has been in Texas for a year....Boss. He would ask me almost very day after that"how long have you been in Texas?" The nicest people ever. Miss those days. We full time so we will have the best of both worlds. Michigan in the summer and Texas in the winter.

Drove from Texarkana to El Paso a few years ago...long long drive. Extremely monotonous with the tumbleweeds and sandstorms. About the only tree I saw in Odessa was IN a bank.

IMO...If a lot more of our states would operate with the mentality of Texas...We'd be in better shape!
(Have many relatives who reside in TX)

In Galveston, we would HIGHLY recommend a stay at Jamaica Beach. Spent a month there, recently. Wonderful place, great amenities, clean and good price.

Ain't no place like Texas.

All Texas foods should be properly topped off with this great drink.

I lived for a while in Clovis, NM. I kept my glider in Littlefield, TX, about 60 miles away. For the most part it's up on the plains, and looks totally flat... but Clovis is 1,000' higher than Littlefield. Texas has 7 geological/climatic regions... each different... and each with it's own beauty. Yep, I'm a Texan, through and through... And while I did live briefly in another state... please remember, that area was part of Texas LONG before it was New Mexico...

We're selling our beautiful cedar home on 4 acres in East Texas Piney woods so we can hit the road full time in the Spring.... Mixed emotions I must admit .....

Will still winter in the Houston area to be close to our children and grandchildren ..... These rigs cost too much to let them just sit most oc the year..... Plus - we love to travel and want to get a lot of it done while we still have our health ....

We are in the "absolute nothing" part of Texas. I have nine tall pine trees in my back yard that are more valuable than my 4 bed room house. Not much to see here, but we are in the center of everything. Four hour drive in any direction will get you there!!!

One of my grandmother's brothers drove a school bus in No Trees in the 1950s and '60s!
