No I’m not going to tune up yer nuke....again.
LOL- my ten year old daughter is always fascinated by the mixmasters when we have occasion to go through the big city. I do have to point out that Abilene is full of lousy drivers, though- just have to keep an eye out for them.
Well, sometimes it can’t be helped. After moving to Deep East Texas, I won a surf and turf dinner from a radio station. Yep, I had to talk smack when I learned that surf and turf in that area meant catfish and chicken fried steak. Some things are just wrong and need to be pointed out.
My kids spent their first decade in Deep East Texas, and unfortunately my daughter’s first sight of a real mix master was from the top, on the back of my motorcycle. She liked to have blown out both of my eardrums with her screaming.
Roger that! We’re more in a position to pick and choose which snotty Yankees we let in these days!

Well, that’s surf and turf...sort of. Anyway that’s some good eatin’. LOL
If I am looking for a way OUT of my "home', why on earth would I make fun of a place I would now call home?
The only problem I would have with TX, as I do NY is the illegal aliens.
Besides the only radio I listen to is talk radio and my cd''s, which are mostly 70's am, with some 80's freestyle and pop.
Don't ask me about the new comer's. I have no IDEA....and I like it that way.
And whats all this crap about vampire and werewolves? I had a 50 something woman SHOVE a pentagram in my face knowing exactly how I would react to it. This freakin world is upside down....and I want off!
Here is some food for thought. Forbes is looking out for folks like you ( down south, we’re folks)
There are several places noted in Texas, but also Raleigh (and Durham and the Research Triangle) and Nashville (no income tax)
I read the actual article in Forbes and it is much more complete and includes smaller cities separately from the top 25 big cities so it might be worth checking out too.
When opportunity knocks.....answer the door
The medical center in Houston is freaking amazing! I loved working there when it was still young- 15-20 years ago. NASA folks living down there are conservatives. Lots of old family money from oil rooted there.
Downsides would be that it’s Harris County. They let a lot of people out of jail there due to overcrowding. Plus lots of Katrina folks rode the buses there and never left.
More pluses...It’s not NY. It’s not Austin. You couldn’t pay me to live in Austin. “Keep Austin Weird” makes them proud. DFW is where I am, and I swear every other person is here from California, NY or NJ. Like me - I’ve lived half my life in NJ.
But like I said, the medical center is one cool place. Everything you could ever imagine medicine-wise right there.
Getting used to the no-season year took a few years to get used to, but that’s what airplanes are for. I’d much rather live without seasons if it means lower taxes, lower cost of living, and less liberals to annoy me all year.
Much good luck to you. :)
You’d be surprised how many come down from the North and other places and try to poke fun at some of our people, places and way of doing things and constantly brag about ‘how much better this or that was at home’.
My mother, who is an RN, tells the story about an RN who moved down to Texas from NYC and was always spouting about ‘that’s not the way we always did it’, and ‘this and that was so much better back home.
The supervisor happened to drop by, overhead her mouthing off and told her, ‘If you don’t like things here in Texas, there’s a bus leaving everyday for NY’.
Just FReepmail it to me when you start looking! I’ll be happy to help.
You could save money on moving by staying overnight at FReeper houses.
You would certainly be welcome here in SW Mo for a night.
Grits work great on clearing out the fire ants there. Do they work on red ants in Texas?”
They have them for breakfast every morning with their eggs - one of the things that makes them so big.
I believe! I think you meant this for NoGrayZone.
I read recently that Houston city limits is now 33% white.
Isn’t Baytown just a bigger hellhole?
Not even close.
Baytown has one of the highest per capita number of millionaires in the country. Most of them are retired Exxon people. May not live like there is a lot of money in Baytown; they just don’t spend it.
I’m familiar with Baytown...it’s a hellhole. I also know some of the Exxon millionaires and you’re right...they don’t spend it... and it shows.
