Some things every kid growing up in texas should know

  • How to ride a horse.
  • How to shoot a gun (more like what a gun can and cannot do)
  • The reason Texas was a nation before she became a state.
  • What crude oil smells like.
  • What it takes to grow a crop.
  • The difference between a steer and a bull.
  • That livestock are not pets
  • That nobody 'owes' you anything.
  • How many stars are actually in a west Texas sky.
  • That you wave a 'thank you' to other drivers who give you a break.

Unfortunately most kids here are living in huge metroplexes that identify more with NYC than historic Texas, and will never get a chance to experience most of that list.

NOTE TO SELF- buy ammo Fri for Danica's range day on Sat.

I've had to enable moderation because some bots just can't stop sh1tting where other people want to live......kind of like Liberals.

It's either this or WV...
