Howdy, Texas!

Road Trip everyone!

Where the jokers live!

Sweet dreams...

Texas, our Texas! All hail the mighty State!

Texas, our Texas! So wonderful so great!

Boldest and grandest, Withstanding ev'ry test;

O Empire wide and glorious, You stand supremely blest.

God bless you Texas! And keep you brave and strong,

That you may grow in power and worth,

Thro'out the ages long.

As the old saying goes, "Everything's bigger in Texas" well so is the heat! We entered TX at 4:00 pm and temperature is 103! Whew, it's a little warm! We have made great time today until now...more construction!

Did you know...The Aransas Wildlife Refuge is the winter home of North America's only remaining flock of whooping cranes.

The world's first rodeo was held in Pecos on July 4, 1883.

Dr Pepper was invented in Waco in 1885. The Dublin Dr Pepper, 85 miles west of Waco, still uses pure imperial cane sugar in its product. There is no period after the Dr in Dr Pepper.

We rolled into Walmart in Marshall, TX at 5:30 pm. The temperature was a stifling 103 degrees still.

We parked, relaxed with a drink and tried to cool down! It's even hot with the air on!

All of a sudden while we were sitting there some smarty knocked on the door and ran! I guess this means that it's going to be a long night! There are jokers everywhere!

Sweet dreams...maybe.
