Preach it, Caliann – food’s at least the BEST reason. Getting away from 6′ piles of dirty snow everywhere you look is another…

Okay, food and *warmth* are the best reasons to come here. LOL But, I must say, there is a certain wisdom in a plate piled high with homefries, steak, biscuits, all slathered in cream gravy with a nice side of of lemon-pepper greens that have been simmered in enough butter to cause a coronary just by themselves.

I won’t get into our Tex-Mex….yet….

TEXAS: COME FOR THE BARBECUE, STAY FOR THE WISDOM.



You say “I’ll pass on the wisdom, I want a second helping of that barbecue”?

Already you are becoming wise.

Ahhhhhh, grasshoppah! Already you move towards enlightenment.

Now, would you be so kind, in a manner of speaking, to pass that potato salad?

“Okay, food and *warmth* are the best reasons to come here.”

Texas has at least 7 big biomes that are not alike. But the one I spent time in had five seasons:

Summer #1
Fall
Spring
Summer#2
Hell

Some of the food was almost worth it.

One of the times, in Las Vegas, when Steve and I went grocery shopping, a cold front moved in while we were in the store. As we came out, the breeze hit my dressed-for-the-desert body, and I shivered, exclaiming:

“Jeez, it’s FREEZING! It MUST be 70 degrees!”

Steve, being from Minnesota, nearly died of asphyxiation on the spot.
