We would know 3 hikers were in my wash going south Tuesday. Called BP they didn't seem to care much.

I've been in Texas almost 55 years and never seen any of these creatures. Of course, I don't get out of Dallas much.

I took these pictures from our room at Chisos Mountain Lodge in Big Bend National Park, Texas. These javelinas appear to be peaceable enough, but I didn't try to pet them.

A couple of years ago after I had retired, I accepted a temporary job in downtown Dallas. My boss there advised me to get out of the downtown area before dark, which is what I did.

I went to work before 7:00 AM every day and some of the creeptures were still out.

The one in the middle could easily be mistaken for Mexican - the other two, not so much. I see one of them even flashed you the hang ten sign, LOL! Well that would place it!

Local comedian Andy Bumatai can do six minutes on what ethnicity he's mistaken for in every corner of the world...

I have a neighbor whose mother was Korean, father with a polish surname, born in Hawaii even though he didn't live there long. Like a true-born Hawaiian he only wears flip-flops. Anyway - he is always mistaken for Mexican descent around here and has to explain that he doesn't, in fact, speak Spanish at all.
