You forgot the rain that we can get here at times...

" ...INCREDIBLE AS THESE RAIN TOTALS ARE...THEY STILL PALE IN COMPARISON
TO THE RAINFALL TOTALS PRODUCED BY TROPICAL STORM CLAUDETTE IN 1979.
THE U.S. 24 HOUR RECORD RAINFALL TOTAL OCCURRED IN ALVIN TEXAS ON
JULY 24 1979. 43 INCHES OF RAIN FELL ON ALVIN DURING THAT 24 HOUR
PERIOD. ..."

And then we can have a summer with no rain for 60 plus days... which kills almost everybody's grass.... causes water shortages etc...

I think you forgot to mention some of the other varmints that are in or will soon migrate back to Texas - Mr. Bush, Mr. Gonzales (ex-AG - who can not find a job) and Mr. Rove (who works at Fox).

I know that in the beginning I was a little harsh on Mr. Bush but the fellow has grown a bit on me. Mr. Bush deserves a second chance.

Hey, Texas is working on overturning and finding a less harsh sentence on the mandatory death sentences for DUI convictions.

As for REDNECKS there is nothing wrong with them.

GOD BLESS US ALL
