Well, little darlin', we'll just make you an honorary Texan right here and right now. All you got to do hold up one hand, in a fist, with the index and little finger extended upward, thumb on the middle two fingers and swear the oath...

1. Honky Tonks serving up cold Lone Stars or Shiners.
2. That Lone Star flag waving in all her glory.
3. Country music the way it should sound-Hank, Sr., Haggard, Jones, Cash
4. Dance halls with those large wooden dance floors to 2 step across! Gruene Hall, The Broken Spoke....
5. The friendliness of everyone.
6. The great HOT weather!
7. The Alamo
8. The Riverwalk
9. The Ft.Worth Stockyards
10. Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake) in Austin
11. Kerbey Lane Cafe pancakes!
12. Chicken Sh*t Bingo at Ginny's in Austin every Sunday afternoon.
13. Tubing the rivers
14. Great BBQ
15. Going out and seeing a sea of cowboy hats, boots and tight wranglers!

I could add more, but I'm tired...just got home from work!
Yes ma'am, step number six on your list is one of many reasons why I love Texas!

Sure enough, they beat OSU and I am sure that my classmates are pretty bummed and probably cussing me out, lol.

Dallas also won their games again Tampa Bay, which was good. Can't wain to see Romo play again.
