As a resident of the center of all that is good and right in the civilized world I’m accustomed to attempts to usurp the throne, but Texas?  I thought the only thing they had going for them was. .  . um. . .  give me a minute. . .  Let me get back to you.

One of the photos on the site you showed is the Lighthouse in Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in the US (you know the “grandest”). The Lighthouse is the State Natural Phallic Symbol, and serves to show that ours is bigger than yours. The State Man-made Phallic Symbol is the San Jacinto Monument, taller than the Washington one, and is always erect (erections lasting longer than four hours are problematic - but those lasting several decades are amazing).

There’s a saying in California… it goes…

“There’s nothing but steers and queers in Texas.”

queer [kweer] -er, -est,  –adjective, verb, noun

1. strange or odd from a conventional viewpoint; unusually different; singular: a queer notion of justice.
2. of a questionable nature or character; suspicious; shady: Something queer about the language of their constitution keeps intellectuals away.
3. not feeling physically right or well; giddy, faint, or qualmish: to feel queer.
4. mentally unbalanced or deranged: Them Bushes are mighty queer!

You’ll have to decide for yourself if it’s true.

Yeah? Well I grew up with “There’s nothing but fruits and nuts in California.”

I suppose we can all be thankful we don’t live in Alabama.

That’s your cue Alabama people…

I had a customer in New York City ask, “How are things in the Land of Fruits and Nuts?”  It was the first I’d heard that expression and it didn’t sting at all and we became firends.

HIs best line was, “Hang on.  (He didn’t mute the phone or hold)  Hey, Vinny!!  Tell Nick get to that delivery here by 5:00 or he’ll be known as Nick The Fuckin’ Eunuch!!”.

Don’t worry ... I’m used to the heat! How’s this for a come on?

No oil expected to hit Florida beaches this week

No additional oil from the Gulf of Mexico spill will wash up on the Panhandle and other Florida beaches because of a combination of westerly winds and the newly-capped gusher, state officials say. If the favorable weather holds… Nearly 96 percent of Florida’s more than 1,260 miles of coastline remains unimpacted.  View latest updates!

If you add “flakes” you have a nice, healthy breakfast cereal.  I guess three wrongs can make a right in some cases.

I wrote “civilized world’.

I’m going to California next week with the grandkids. 2 days in Disneyland and one day in San Diego at the Del Coronado, at the end of a road trip that takes me through Santa Fe, the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas.  Now, I’ve actually come to your state.  You owe a visit here.  There are 254 counties in Texas, and I’ve been to ‘em all. Just ask me and I can tell you the best places. Texas - it’s like a whole other country.

Don’t bet the kids in Vegas!  BTW, you just recently took them to the Alamo.  Spoiling ‘em rotten seems like.

True.  Not sure how governed.  Have an enjoyable and safe trip
