Look what happened now...
(No one really says Howdy, unless they are being a smart ass) * _____ *
So I'm still in Texas. People are writing/texting asking where am I? ..still here. As per the plan, working my ass off. I'm taking some time off in Aug to go to Austin (Texas) to just chill & visit my buds. Had also wanted to go camping in central Texas but is still way too hot for that. So I will be here for awhile yet.
One of the Texas Myths I get asked about is the price of fuel. "Is it dirt cheap? It is right? Cause it's all around you."
Well hmm, no. Its all around, but has to be pumped, processed & refined and blah, blah ask a petroleum engineer, (which I am not). We all think it cost too much. California is always more expensive, but it cost enough here, trust me.
This was taken 7/27/13 as I filled up my truck.
I had 1/4 of a tank to begin with. So yes, cheaper than some places..but not FREE. I don't drive as much as I used to, my commute is very short, lol. And it's different prices all over the state. It can vary quite a bit town by town. Some of my friends spend over $500.USD a month just driving to work.
2nd Myth: Its always HOT in Texas.
This is true, except when it's cold. LOL Anyway, yea the summers are horrible.
Thankfully it was cooler this weekend- Ms. Angela keeps saying this is going to be the coolest Aug on record. No one else seems to have heard that. I am crossing my fingers she is right.
(The one on the left, lol) I had to wear a cardigan over it for work, but was still very comfortable.

3rd Myth: There are NO Vegetarians/Vegans/Healthy places to eat.
No, they are here. I am often asked what I eat in Texas..well I cook so that is a BIG + but there are more & more choices opening up. Oh & I went to a new health food store in New Braunfels, click here for a short post on it.
Oh and I order food from Amazon. Speaking of I just received a shipment of Loma Linda Linketts and am working on a review. I have eaten them for years..they are soo good. There's your review, short and sweet, right? No, I have a few more things to say about them. Hope to finish & post this week.
Ok, Its late & I have to run. I spent a good part of Saturday looking for that shelf thing for my buddy's birthday. Still no luck. I didn't take photos in the shops because they were so stuffed with junk. I am sorry "Antiques", not JUNK.
Catch you later - I have hot dogs to eat. :D
