The shape of Texas. The Texas flag. The Alamo was the first thing. Texas is so diverse, I don’t think any one landscape can capture it all. When you travel the world, when you tell people you are from Texas, they immediately think “cowboy”

X2, the shape of Texas.

If I see that Texas is not already outlined on a map, in my mind I immediately draw it in. Don’t know if this is OCD or just pure Texas pride, but I will immediately correct such an obvious oversight.

I've only met one Russian, in my life. He was a concert violinist.
And he said, he'd never seen so many beautiful women than in Texas.
He really thought, it was an American trick.

Very true, I just hope, people get as tire of this crap going on, as I am, and say enough is enough and stand up and stop the BS dead. It needs to be done, or we will loose our state and country. There is a mission to destroy both and most of the country is allowing it to happen, acting like it is a fad. It's not a fad, it's been a long well thought out, long term plan. They are accomplishing way too much way too fast, too many are just ignoring what has been done, what is being done.

When I think of Texas, it would take a very thick book to put all those images in. There is just a whole lot to Texas. I am 52, have driven a lot of this state and I know there is a lot of this state I have never seen. Every once in a while, I get to see areas I have never seen, I always find very interesting stuff. You could spend your whole life driving this state and not see all there is to see or experience.

The sunsets where the sky is on fire
The dew on my windows in the morning from the humidity
The bay in the early morning
Deer grazing at the edge of the tree line
Bluebonnets, bbq, and Buccees
Families stopped at Woody’s in Centerville
Clean trucks and atvs on the highway o n Friday’s. Dirty coming home on Sunday.
Antlers poking out an ice chest
Magellan fishing shirts


And perhaps my most cherished image of Texas is the look on Houston Texans fans’ faces when their team ****s another season into the toilet by Week 6 with no meaningful franchise progress.

A group of bucks chasing a doe in an open mesquite flat in December. A covey of quail busting out of a yucca thicket in west texas mountains! Red headed tom peeking over a ridge trying to find that hen he keeps hearing. A giant axis buck trotting up a rocky ridge in the hill country. Teal buzzing the rice patch just before shooting time in eagle lake. A big yellow mouth trout blowing up on a she dog along the flats in mansfield. A silver flash outside the jetties in POC from a feeding tarpon. A big offshore boat backing into the scales with their marlin flags flying. The sun rise over the piney woods and a sun set over the mountains out west!! It doesn't get any better than Texas!
