 Facts about Texas
When you're from Texas, people that you meet ask you questions like, Do you have any cows?" "Do you have horses?" "Bet you got a bunch of guns, eh?"They all want to know if you've been to Southfork. They watched Dallas.

Have you ever looked at a map of the world? Look at Texas with me just for a second. That picture, with the Panhandle and the Gulf Coast, and the Red River and the Rio Grande is as much a part of you as anything ever will be.. As soon as anyone anywhere in the world looks at it they know what it is. It's Texas. Pick any kid off the street in Japan and draw him a picture of Texas in the dirt and he'll know what it is. What happens if I show you a picture of any other state? You might get it maybe after a second or two, but who else would? And even if you do, does it ever stir any feelings in you?

In every man, woman and child on this planet, there is a person who wishes just once he could be a real live Texan and get up on a horse or ride off in a pickup. There is some little bit of Texas in everyone.Texas is the Alamo, 183 men standing in a church, facing thousands of Mexican nationals, fighting for freedom, who had the chance to walk out and save themselves, but stayed instead to fight and die for the cause of freedom. We send our kids to schools named William B. Travis and James Bowie and Crockett and do you know why? Because those men saw a line in the sand and they decided to cross it and be heroes. John Wayne paid to do the movie himself. That is the Spirit of Texas.Texas is Sam Houston capturing Santa Ana at San Jacinto.Texas is "Juneteenth" and Texas Independence Day.Texas is huge! forests of Piney Woods like the Davy Crockett National Forest.Texas is breathtaking mountains in the Big Bend.Texas is the unparalleled beauty of bluebonnet fields in the Texas Hill Country.Texas is the beautiful, warm beaches of the Gulf Coast of South Texas.Texas is the shiny skyscrapers in Houston and Dallas.

Texas is world record bass from places like Lake Fork.Texas is Mexican food like nowhere else, not even Mexico.Texas is the Fort Worth Stockyards, Bass Hall, the Ballpark in Arlington and the Astrodome.Texas is larger-than-life legends like Michael DeBakey, Denton Cooley, Willie Nelson, Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, Janis Joplin, Kris Kristofferson, Tom Landry, Darrell Royal, ZZ Top, Eric Dickerson, Earl Campbell, Nolan Ryan, Sam Rayburn, George H. W.Bush, Lyndon B.Johnson.Texas is great companies like Dell Computer, Texas Instruments and Compaq. And LOCKHEED MARTIN AEROSPACE,! Home of the F-16 Jet Fighter and the JSF Fighter.Texas is NASA.Texas is huge herds of cattle and miles of crops.Texas is skies blackened with doves, and fields full of deer.Texas is a place where towns and cities shut down to watch the local High School Football game on Friday nights and for the Cowboys on Monday Night Football, and for the Night In Old San Antonio River Parade in San Antonio. Texas is ocean beaches, deserts, lake s and rivers, mountains and prairies, and modern cities.If it isn't in Texas, you probably don't need it.No one does anything bigger or better than it's done in Texas.

By federal law, Texas is the only state in the U.S. that can fly its flag at the same height as the U.S. flag. Think about that for a second. You fly the Stars and Stripes at 20 feet in Maryland, California, or Maine and your state flag, whatever it is, goes at 17 feet. You fly the Stars and Stripes in front of Pine Tree High in Longview or anyplace else at 20 feet, the Lone Star flies at the same height - 20 feet. Do you know why? Because it is the only state that was a republic before it became a state.

Also, being a Texan is as high as being an American down here. Our capitol is the only one in the country that is taller than the capitol building in Washington, D.C. and we can divide our state into five states at any time if we wanted to! We included these things as part of the deal when we came on. That's the best part, right there.Texas even has its own power grid!!

Vive La Texas! haha.
Yup I know what you are saying in this. Even I as a non-American can understand all of this. There is just something so appealing about Texas. I don't know whether it is the oil, the cattle, the mountaineous views, Dallas (the program), very shiny skyscrapers, big ten gallon hats, the accent or whatever. There is just something that draws you too it.
I miss you baby
Wow, I learned a lot about Texas, today. Thanks for sharing, Sonya. Your Texan pride is showing! Good for you!
Very cool!!
I love San Antonio -- spent a week at the River Walk for work, skipped most of the conference to enjoy it all.

Drove across the small part at the top of Texas last February, my mother lived in NM and moved her back to KY --- got pulled over by a Texas Trooper -- man they were tough, I had to cry for a law enforcement courtesy so I wouldn't get a ticket.

Overall -- great state.
Hello everyone! It's Saturday night! What are yall up to?
That was really awesome Sonya. It gave me the chills.
So Texas is in the south right?
