Jokes from Texas

Warning sign in pastureMike’s family is visiting us this and next week. They’re in transit from South Korea to Italy via San Antonio, Texas, so I’ve prepared ahead a few blogs for days when I’m too busy having fun to write. Today I have a series of cartoons about Texas, where Mike’s family has been this summer. I hope the humor makes you smile but doesn’t offend anybody. Forgive me if they’re not all P.C. Once the kids are gone and I’m home alone, I’ll resume attempting to write thoughtful posts about life.

  1. What a kick! I do get homesick for Michigan, but I have come to love our adopted state – TEXAS!! Being a carnivore I particularly liked the food pyramid. And, just to let you know, within the last year a local man received a citation for riding his horse into town to go to a fast food restaurant. There is a city ordinance prohibiting it. He felt that since he came late at night and there were few people around that it was okay. Since our church is in Lucas (the next community east of us and where the rider is from), which is essentially a bedroom community with one acre lots minimum, we often see riders when going to church. Personally I like the way Lucas is because it keeps our east side of Allen quiet. West Allen is on the west side of Hwy. 75 and is a busy, traffic clogged side of town. Many people in Lucas have 5-10 acres.

    • Thanks, Marilyn! I love hearing “the real deal” in Texas. But what I want to know is, do any of the parishioners at your church come on horseback? Maybe if you had a stable, they might?! 🙂
