Wordless Wednesday...Yep! We’re Back In Texas!

 

Larry and were walking out to the car recently and had to chuckle.  There sat our little Prius surrounded by pickup trucks. 

 

 

One day we pulled up to Tractor Supply in our little 2- door convertible and a lady walked out to her Ford 250. She laughed and said  Tell me you’re not picking up bales of hay or bags of feed in that! 

 

And to top it off, I read an alert about suspicious activity in a nearby neighborhood and the description was a white Ford pickup! Really?!!!  That could be half the city of Houston!

Welcome to Texas,  Everything is BIG there they always say.  So you may have to have a truck and a car.

Good morning Kathy - that is so funny.  My son in law would fit in there.  He is a financial executive living in Connecticut but he loves his pick up truck.

Nina Hollander I'm laughing because I have a feeling the thought did cross Larry's mind. However we don't want to give up our Prius or Jag and we don't need 3 cars. 

Michael Jacobs oddly enough, the state of CA has more pickup trucks (due to construction from what I hear) than you'd think! Personally I'd love a Ford 250, black with gold trim.

Wayne Martin that's what it was like in Delray Beach...Bentleys, Maserati's, RR's, Lamborghini's ...you get my drift. 

Thanks RE Virtual Solutions I love the people here!!!!

Sally K. & David L. Hanson well yes, everything is bigger!!! Bigger hearts too. 

Brian England we've had Expeditions (love them) but never a pickup truck. 

Barbara Todaro we've had a lot of SUV's especially for towing our boats or for Larry's hunting.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I've always called the smaller SUV's Suvettes. I have no idea why but just have. 

Donald Urschalitz I'm laughing because you're probably right. 

Scott Godzyk I saw some the other week!  What's interesting is to go to a nice restaurant or hotel and see men getting out of their shiny pick up trucks in their tuxedos.

Sheila Anderson I'm very happy. When I was at the dentist's office today, the hygienist greeted me with "Hi Miss Kathy!"  I've missed that. People call each other Miss whatever.

Sharon Lee that's the truth.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 I'm probably going to get a pair for the winter but for now I have on my everpresent flip flops. 

Will Hamm you never know!  Right now, I don't want to have to deal with 3 cars.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS but I love the mileage I get on my Prius!!!

Grant Schneider I can't tell you how much I miss my Expedition!  I would love another one. 

Sharon Tara  I tried to catch a similar time when we were at an intersection...there were pickups and large SUV's everywhere.

Texas definitely has a strong identity.  When I think about that state, I conjure up images of longhorn cattle, cowboy boots, cowboy hats, pickup trucks, rifles, and the proud wearing of the Texas state logo or flag everywhere.

Morning Kathy.

Having lived in Houston in my younger years, I can attest that would make up the vast majority of vehicles.  Loved it

That's a fun photo, Kathy. It sounds like you have slipped right back into life in Texas!

We see a fair amoung ot pick-up trucks here - good for hauling surfboards - but more SUVs.

Ha!  You point out the very reason my wife says our next car will be a SUV or truck, Kathy Streib ... you're at a distinct disadvantage in a sedan these days.  And that's true even in suburban Chicagoland!
