them off at your front gate in the middle of the night.
The sound of coyotes howling at night only sounds good for the first few
When a buzzard sits on the fence and stares at you, it's time to see a
Fix-in-to is one word.
A TANK is a dirt hole that holds water for irrigation, watering the cows, or
There ain't no such thing as "lunch". There is only dinner and then there's

You Know you are from Texas if:

3. Stores don't have bags, they have sacks.
4. You see a car with the engine running in the Wal-mart parking lot with no
one in it, no mater what time of the year.
5.You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixin' to go to the store.
(note: in the portion above "fix-in-to" is one word....)
6 All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit or a vegetable.
7. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both
8. You carry jumper cables for your own car.
9. You know what "cow tipping" and "snipe hunting" are.
l0. You only have four spices in your kitchen: Salt, Pepper, Catsup, and
11. You think everyone from north of Dallas has an accent.

18. You know whether another Texan is from East, West, North, or South Texas
as soon as he opens his mouth.
19. Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past-time known as "goin Wal- Martin" or
"off to Wally-world".
20. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good chili
21. A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop....It's a Coke
regardless of brand of flavor.

Texas (or others so they'll understand Texans).
