It rained today. I felt soooo good. Oh, you know. I didn't feel great.

I must gather the cat and climb the ladder to my loft, my eyes are crossing.

Check the times on Susie's post and my post.

you or anything.

I would love to go and check out Texas. Does it look anything like the cowboy movies??

I'm sure thier are cities, but on the commercials it looks like mile and miles of open acres  with horses running around!

I dont know, Then what would I do when my rsd kicks in! Ask some of the good old boys for an extra dilaudid!!!! Or run into the open range pharmacy store!!

          Just some kidin around, but I would like to check it out someday...

             Hope Everyone Has A Pain Free Day!!!!

Mike,
 
I have lived in several other states and I will say without a moment of hesitation Fort Worth is my favorite place I have ever lived. I have been here over 30 yrs and to me its home. Yes, there is so much to see and do in Tx. I love it down south going towards to the coast. Some of the small towns are incredible. East Tx has some wonderful bed & breakfast spots and the best antique stores around. Plenty of great German food that direction too.
 
We have a part of town called the "north side", thats where Billy Bobs is. Its like the old west, they even have staged gun fights. Some of the well known bars have been in movies. Our police dept patrols on horseback down there and in downtown Fort Worth. A friend mine came from Ohio to see me one summer and her & I went to the north side. I thought she was going to crawl out of the sun roof of my car when she saw the cop on the horse, oh the camera went to snapping,lol. We went to Billy Bobs one night for the free dance lessons, she wanted to learn to two step.
 
I have to say the friendliest people I have ever met has been here. Now, Dallas, thats like a foreign country to us Fort Worth folks,lol. Too big, too commercialized, no deals made with a hand shake, too many without money wanting you to think they have money, then there are the ones with more money than sense. Yep, its foreign country over there,lol.
 
If you ever set out to travel somewhere I don't think Tx would diappoint you. Just don't show up in July & August, the heat is a killer.......Susie

Thanks Suzie!!!!
 
  That sounds just like I pictured it in my mind. I knew there was Dallas and city life, but I always wanted to think about the other parts of Texas. Police on horseback and the sunrise and sunset with those brilliant sun colors shining just sounds so layed back and oldschool I wish I could leave today!!!! Plus my foot would love the hot weather!
 
Sometimes it's nice to digress a little bit to take your mind off other things that could use a break..........
 
                Thank You So much for the consideration, tongue
 
                        Hope Everyone Has A Pain Free Day!!!!
                                          
                                                   Mike
 
P.S. I think I will go look for a good western on cable to watch!!!!!!!!!    yeah               

Pete trips again!

Mike, I'll second Susie on what she said about the people in Texas. I lived in Austin in the early to mid 80's and the people there and all around there were so nice. Someone not saying "Houdy" on the street was the exeption, not the rule! I loved it in Austin back then, it's in the hill country w/ lots of lakes, rivers and crystal clear springs. (swimmin holes) I haven't been back there in years and I guess it's probably out grown it's small town feel but I'm sure it's still a beutiful place.
Your Ex-Tex Bud,

How places differ! In San Francisco if you say "Howdy" to someone on the street you just
don't know what could happen. You wouldn't want to find out either. (If you really knew
the area and the people there, it might be ok ... but not as a stranger!)
Whatchoo doing up so late, Pete?

Pete, Austin is still a great city. Its just what you described. And yes, we do say Howdy. And the hill country is awesome, now have wineries down there, woohoo. Tx best. Get on down to San Antonion and life is great, wonderful food. I am packing my bag and I am out of here,lol. Oh, I am longing for down south badly. Spent lots of time down south in the summer & fall. Susie

Oh yes, go down past San Marcos to a little German town called Gruene, they have the oldest honky tonk in Tx. Nothing like a cold miller lite with your feet propped up on the wood stove and hearing some boy sing, thats how George Strait got started. Free entertainment at Gruene Hall on thw weekends, been there & done.
