If I wasn't from Arkansas...


...I'd love to be from Texas! I recently drove 16 hours alone (don't ask why) from NE Arkansas to the Southernmost tip of Texas. I noticed that there is a distinct pride that comes with the territory. You're not just from Texas...you're from TEXAS! The Lone Star flag flies everywhere...and big ones too. Lone Star bumper stickers cover four-wheel drives with those Texas Truck license plates. There are some fine people down there as well. Now don't take me wrong, I'm a proud Arkansan...a Razorback fan from the womb, and I realize that this maybe heresy...but I do like the Longhorns. I like Austin, the colors, and, of course, the hook em' horns. Yeah, I could be from Texas.
