Why Texas is more than worth it...
Especially on a beautiful spring day like this - a day that was simply MADE for my red convertible - the drive home is greatly improved by the Good Lord's creation, as nurtured by Lady Bird.
I've always lived in Texas, other than those first few months of life when I was hanging out in Louisville, Kentucky. Sometimes I hear about other states and imagine what it would be like to live there. But I just can't bring myself to seriously consider moving - partly because my parents live here but mostly because it's home.
Don't get me wrong. I know Texas isn't perfect. The attention our State Board of Education calls upon itself is particularly galling to my sensibilities. (Note: that is NOT a political statement - my blog is still politically pure - people of all political persuasions across the country are also appalled by the shenanigans.) It also gets just a wee bit hot in the summer. And...ok...so maybe we are a little obnoxious about how special and great our state is.
But tell the truth. If you had flowers like this, wouldn't you be a little cocky too?
