Howdy all,
Central Texas (N. of Waco) checking in here. We lurk more than we post. We are working our way to being as self-sufficient as possible.

I know that this was posted awhile back, but thanks, I sure enjoyed it. I also have been and lived in some of those places.

Was born and raised in East Texas. The Hubby was in the AF so had to leave for a spell. Spent most of the time in *gasp* dare I say it.......... northern California and a year in southern California.

I was so very glad to get back to Texas. Been out here in West Texas longer than he was in the AF.

Grr... I am so sorry Christine I meant to leave a message on here to figure a way to find you and in the rush completely forgot I remembered about the time we were passing Spring Branch. Thought the campground would have wi-fi so I'd use the one laptop we brought but it didn't. I was listening to all the folks there to see if I heard someone call your name so I could ask if yall were the ones from the net

Noticed a couple of the workers looking me over. Figured they were wondering where my name tag was. Big fella, full beard, overalls, figured they thought I worked there and was taking too long of a break :P. Anyhow, toward the evening, a fellow approached me and asked if I was from England. Turns out, they had a fellow working there from England a few years back and I guess I looked like him lol.

Man... I love that fest. I will definetly go back next year. That was a blast. The in-laws had a good time. The kids had a great time. Sure did like it.

Oh... and kept seeing couples on scooters along 281 and 46 wondering if they were debi and DH... hehe.

Hi everyone. We have one foot in North Texas, and one foot in East Texas. Maybe some day we can get our feet together.

We are a Republic, a State in the United States of America, once belonging to Mexico. Six flags have flown over Texas and we still retain citizenry who brought those flags.

We are a multifaceted State of citizens, the weather in Texas is multifaceted as is the terrain. We have it all from mountains to desert sands to sea coasts and everthing in between. We also have the only living stand of trees that were around with the dinosaurs.

Texas itself is an ancient seabed, a huge portion of the State is at or below sea level, areas in north Texas are only 500 to 800 feet above sea level. Texas can also boast that we have the cleanest drinking water in the entire nation.

Texans are a free and independent people, strong and friendly but definately not someone to shove around. When I was a girl we were still called "Texicans" by a lot of people.

The Texas economy is number one in the Nation, and Texas also ranks number one in the nation as recipients of the highest awards and highest numbers of those awards presented for the sciences. Red Adair, our famous fire fighter for oil rigs, was asked by President Ronald Reagan to help put out a fire in Space. Adair's men put out the fires on the rigs in Iraq when Saddam decided to set them ablaze.

The first car purchased by a Texas citizen living in Rosebud Texas was described as a fire engine red Model T Ford that had buggy wheels and two lanterns on the front for lights. This car was purchased by a Doctor Aycock who drove a horse and buggy to Waco Texas to make the purchase.

We celebrate a lot here. From American Indians to the ringing of the bell in Buddhist temples, we are the Family of the Nations in the truest sense of the word. Every culture is celebrated in Texas. And that means we have really good people here, and really good food here as well.

We smile a lot because we know how good we have it here.

Have left several times, but always come back. Central Texas raised born in Arizona but consider myself a Texan. We are currently a state, but the way things are going I hope we do become our own country and say the h**l with the rest of the union. We seem to be the only ones who know how to do it right.

My off grid experiece was in Bedias Tx about 30 miles from Huntsville.
How I loved that place.

My Dad did alot of the dirt work building Herman Park--the Astro-dome and Sam Rayburn Dam out of Jasper.

I have pics of my Great-Grand-father on cattle drives in the late 1880's very delicate now because of their age.
My grand-father was killed in an oil drilling explosion in the late 20's at Sour Lake in some of the old Spindle Top areas.
My Great Grand Father on my dads' side was at one time in the 20's Sheriff of Live Oak and Jim Wells counties--the counties were so poor they couldnt afford full time lawmen.
He later became a Texas Ranger for a short period before his death.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh what history we have.

Txanne

Born and raised here in the state. Have lived all over the state.

Moved to East Texas 6+ years ago and am living on the borderline of Cherokee & Rusk County. Like it very much except it just gets too cold in the winter (anything below 60 degrees is too cold ).
