    For everyone who lives outside of Texas,

    who would go back if Texas becomes its own country again? Cuz I know from several of my family members- all Texans themselves- know that Texas is under a treaty with the U.S. so that means that Texas can pull out of the Union at anytime it pleases and the government wouldnt be...

    I've lived in many places in Texas.

    I've met the best people and the worst. I wouldn't take any of it back. I love my Texas! 🌵

    I was born in Austin

    and I had to leave for most of my life to go on several "adventures" for pleasure and profit all over the world but somehow I am always forced to return no matter how many times I go away. My mom's family is what you call Chicanos, Mexicans who settled here back when it was part...

    The Texas Bluebonnet's are blooming,

    a sure fire sign that spring has arrived.  It's not really legal to pick them, I took this one off private property so technically I'm legal with the State, but perhaps not so much with the landowner!  I don't think they'd mind with a little explanation.  I picked...

    I grew up in a small town in Texas.

    You know, the kind of town where everybody knows each other and everybody is in everybody else's business? It's also the kind of place where you can't be yourself. After high school, I left but had a year or two in Texas since then. I think it it wasn't for my family, I'd never...

    And I love it. Been here all my life,

    I have the accent to prove it. Lol This weather though is going to kill me. I have never grown accustomed to the heat! My siblings do just fine, and if it gets over 95 I'm pissed off about life. Lol

    Talking with my stellar English friend about

    "sticker burs" led to a discussion about other not-so-nice local plants...stinging nettle, bull nettle (which apparently grows everywhere...green briar...cactus in many variations, etc. It made me think Texas might need a disclaimer. Plants, insects, reptiles, and some women...

    I live near Houston Texas.

    I actually live near Bush Airport in Humble. I moved to the Houston area when I was 8. I love it here. The mild winters are good and there is a lot to do here when the weather cools off. No place I would rather live

    Originally from true West Texas,

    I make my home in Central Texas now! The blackland prairie to be exact. Texas isn't any better or worse than most other places, but it is for damn sure different. The West Texas I grew up in was oil towns and ranches. Men there don't do manicures and facials...... You work...

    It's Really East!

    I am from Central Texas...at least I thought I was. For the first time ever, I drove into west Texas- all the way to El Paso. I've never seen so many oil rigs and wind turbines- and MOUNTAINS! One never really grasps the enormity of the state until having to spend an entire day...

    Born and raised in the Texas Panhandle.

    Wouldn't trade it for the world. They say if you don't like the weather stick around for 15 minutes, it will change. I've seen snow in June and upper 90s in December
