Wordless Wednesday...Only in Texas

 

After we first moved back to Texas, I tried calculating the ratio of pick-up trucks to regular cars. I finally had to give up! Having been born and raised in Houston, I must admit to having a certain amount (ok a lot!) of Texas brag in me.

 

So...where else but in Texas would you see these guys?  

My favorites were at Tractor Supply (yes we go there) and stand about 6 feet tall. I really wanted one for our backyard but you-know-who shot that idea down.

 

 

Then over at our Ace Hardware, I saw these Redneck Plungers.  They would make a great gift for one of the Christmas grab bag exchanges!!

Hi Kathy... I think I agree with you... "only in Texas!" (But I've always loved Texas and have always enjoyed my trips there.)

Kathy,

I love those roosters...I think they would look good in a big backyard in the country.  I am happy that you live where your roots are.  A

Not only in Texas as far as the chickens....we have plenty of people in NH who would want those for their yard. I'm not one of them. LOL

Kathy I love those redneck plungers.  That would make a great gift for our family Christmas party.  I have to go on line and see if I can find one.

Kathy, your photos made me laugh.  I ALMOST moved to Panama City Beach, but WAY too redneck for me.  They didn't even have a Starbucks at the time.

Grant Schneider I really am. When we first moved to Florida and someone called me a Floridian, I almost bit their head off. 

Brian England and I'm not sure what our other birds would think of them either!

Michael Jacobs I know you want one of those plungers!

Ed Silva maybe you could rig up some kind of gas cartridge on it!

Roy Kelley wow, I'm trying to imagine you in a pickup!!!  I love them. 

Wayne Martin What I love about Texas and real Texans is that they're real.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 you know what I missed when we were in Florida besides the Texas accent was the people and how kind they are. 

Kat Palmiotti what you see here are pick-ups, then SUVs.  My neighbor across the street has a large (as in 6feet plus) Texas boot and Texas steer (metal) in his backyard.

Myrl Jeffcoat I'd not heard about the egg shells in the grinder before. Larry says to use ice cubes to clean the blades. When I was in my first apartment complex, just out of college, we had a big shrimp boil. I can remember that someone put the tails down the disposal...not a good idea. Thank goodness it wasn't my apartment. 

faye schubert can you imagine what that rooster might look like after the birds pooped all over it! LOL

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD You're probably right!  I'd never seen the plungers before, at least not in Florida. 

Rocky Dickerson Why thank you!  I love having been raised in the South.

OMG cracking up on the plungers!  Too funny!  And I love the chickens - or are they roosters!   There is a huge rooster up in Sedona.  I'll go see if I can find the photo and share it with you!

Nina Hollander, Broker I'm so glad that you love Texas. It's so diverse in geography and its people. And I love that people here will treat you as if they've known you forever. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel what's interesting is that I felt at home and where I was supposed to be as soon as we returned.

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... over the years, I've been all over Texas many times... Dallas, Houston, Waco, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Galveston, Austin, Fort Worth... and more. Loved it all! (Except maybe that humidity in Houston in the summer time.)

Morning Kathy.

After living in Texas for over 20 years, I'm not going argue with you about "only in Texas".

Hi Kathy Streib - Spoken like a true Texan!  I think I know a thing or to about Texa having grown up in Houston before moving to CA and now Sedona.  I still have a lot of Texan in me.
