See, I won't have that problem.
I've lived in KY, OH, and MI for the vast majority of my life, but I have one advantage... I have a Texas birth certificate.
I've spent enough summers there that I won't be transplanting when I finally move...
I'll be coming home.

Personally I welcome transplants as long as they have a positive attitude and don't try to compare it to where they came from.

Lets keep the culture and natural integrity of Texas. Transplants are overcrowding and overbuilding!

At some point there will be a problem in that most don't want the state to become one of over inflated home value and ever rising property taxes to take care growing population problems.The ever increasing traffic problems th last few years are starting to ware on many.Alos many still like the fact that the state is cities with al;ot of open spaces in between.population growth as never been a priority to many Texans ;just the opposite.they don't like growing much.

I came here by the graces of Uncle Sam and the US Navy. Granted, I really didn't like Texas when I first arrived, as I had requested Minnesota. That was nearly 18 years ago. Took me a little while to acclimate to the Texas way of thinking, doing, living, eating, even breathing. I've thought many times about moving back to my ancestral home - Mississippi - but that's a nono for me, now. There's nothing there to really go back to. Texas is my home, and I'm proud of it, although I won't be buried here. Hell, I won't be buried at all for that matter, cremation and blowing in the wind with the ashes of my pets for the last 25-30 years.

So where did you grow up, Delta? Big differences between Texas, Minnesota and Mississippi! If I couldn't live in Texas, I'd live somewhere in the South. Don't like those cold and dry states or the Left Coast.

Good morning Miss Blue! I am just killling a bit of time waiting for the shower which my better half is presently occupying, so we can get on the road to East Texas. Anyway, if Delta Planter misses this query, I will direct his attention to it tomorow, as he is joining us at Caddo Lake on Monday! LOL This particular trip is an annual "reunion" of a group who write for USADeepSouth. This year, however, due to poor planning on my part, not many were able to make it, but he is one who will!

Psssssst? At the risk of answering for him, I will just give you a hint that the answer can be found in his screen name! LOL

Grew up in the Mississippi Delta, Cleveland. I was in Norfolk, VA, prior to here. Lived in Grand Prairie for six months, Arlington from 5/91 to 5/03, then Grandview, now Alvarado. When I left Norfolk, I wanted to get out, explore, live some place different, after having lived in Louisiana, Florida, Colorado, and Virginia. I have no qualms, absolutely with Texas now, although that wasn't the case in the beginning.

And my moniker has nothing to do with farming, but with planting people. Family owned a funeral home.

The "Delta" part I knew of course but -- even though I was aware your family owned a funeral home -- the "planter" is one I confess I never made the association! Kewl!

Cool In Other Words - HOWDY

I consider it a compliment when someone moves down here to our great state. I realize that there a few who had no other choice due to a family member's job, but most people who move here really want to be here. They just have to adjust to our way of thinking. Hey, in a matter of time, they'll even talk jest lak wee dew!

For all of you who've moved to Texas, let me just say........
