You Know You Are In Texas If. . .

  • The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.

  • The trees are whistling for the dogs.

  • The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.

  • Hot water now comes out of both taps.

  • You can make sun tea instantly.

  • You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.

  • The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.

  • You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.

  • You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.

  • You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

  • You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.

  • Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"

  • You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.

  • The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.

  • Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

  • The cows are giving evaporated milk.

To my Aussie friends this may apply to you as well. Heidi

That was pretty darn cute. I think most of those can apply to Florida as well.
Stay cool my friend. Time for umbrella drinks and floating in the pool.

That's funny but true, we endured one of our hottest summers, can totally relate to this post.
