    Jeff Foxworthy on folks from Texas

    I know there are quite a few Heartland folks from the Lone Star State.........this is so true
    Forget Rednecks, here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about folks from
    Texas ...

    If someone in a Lowe's store offers you assistance and they don't work
    there, you may live in
    Texas

    If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Texas .

    If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a
    wrong number, you may live in Texas .

    If "Vacation" means going anywhere south of Dallas for the weekend, you may live in Texas .

    If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Texas .

    If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live
    in Texas .

    If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both
    unlocked, you may live in Texas .

    If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them,
    you may live in Texas .

    If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -- you're going 80 and
    everybodys passing you, you may live in Texas .

    If you find 60 degrees "a little chilly", you may live in Texas .

    If you actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all your Texas
    friends & others, you definitely live in Texas .

    Having grown up in Texas before joining the Marine Corps, I understand all of those. Still use alot of them today. I wish we got that kind of service at our Lowes here.

    We just got down to Texas a couple of weeks ago and I had to laugh at this post and how accurately it nailed it. I am learning that I need to take the time to enjoy the people. If I want to go to the store I need to know that the people there are going to talk, and talk, then have a chinwag and then maybe conduct business. I had never thought of the PNW being particularly fast paced before. Once "y'all" are out of your cars, you couldn't really find a bunch of nicer folk! Who knew posted speed limits were merely a suggestion?? Chuckles,,, Elizabeth

    Not only are "posted speed limits" a suggestion. Turn signals are a warning sign, "I am coming over, get out of the way!!!" Especially in Houston

    This is so true, as we spent last winter in TX. They are the nicest bunch of people.

    What I like about Texas is they call us "Winter Texans" In AZ you are a "Snowbird" A lot of the locals dont use it as a term of endearment!

    You are so right. I lived in SW Florida for a number of years and we also called the winter residents *&#*! snowbirds.
    What folks won't admit, is the $$ is good for the local economy. Can't have it all...........

    Being down here in the Rio Grande Valley there is a mixture of local Texans (mostly Mexican decendants), Mexicans coming over the border for shopping, etc and us Winter Texans. This just makes it even more interesting when driving especially with the patchwork vehicles that are very common to this area. The nice thing about this area besides the people is that we as Winter Texans have our own paper "The Winter Texan" which gives us what is going on in and around the Valley.

    Great post. I am from Texas and I still try to help people out in the stores up here. My husband hates that and my talking to people. Another thing I do that irritates him is when out in our trailer is going to meet the people that are from Texas. You never know when you might see someone you know or kin to someone you know.
