Portland was cool, but there’s something about Texas that strikes a chord within me. I spent most of today driving all around the Dallas/Irving/Fort Worth area. I listened to 99.5 – The Wolf. Soaking in country music and imagining what it would be like to live in Texas. As I was driving, I started to daydream moving my family to Texas. Passing billboards advertising new houses starting at the $160’s didn’t help. hahaha.
I blame it on my Missouri roots. I was born in the Show Me State and the Chinese country boy has been locked inside of me for a while. It kind of made its first appearance in my Ohio assignment, but slowly faded. But after a week of country music in Portland and Dallas, I think I’m going to go buy some albums. I heard some good tunes by the Band Perry, Eric Church, Lady Antebellum and one of my new favorites Jana Kramer. Do people still buy albums?
The wifey tried to buy me a cowboy hat and some cowboy boots, but they didn’t make hats that were big enough and the boots were too narrow for my wide duck feet. So sad. Anyone want to go country line dancing with Judith and I? Anyone want to move to Texas with the Wu’s? Maybe I should start a church. Newsong Austin (there’s already a Newsong Dallas).
Ok, enough rambling. On to the pictures which is probably the only reason you’re even reading this post. Until next time Texas. Love you long time.
First meal in Texas? Texas BBQ of course! I balanced out this carnage with a salad that night.
This is where you go if there’s a tornado. I think you put your head in the toilet for extra protection.
As if the 7 pillows weren’t enough, they gave me 2 extra. I ended up using zero.
Texas has geocaches too. I dropped off a travel bug from Nevada in this ammo box.
Had a beer with cousin Eric the Rockets fan. Sorry buddy. Linsanity has to play OKC 1st round
Ummmm…Acura Insurance & Income Tax?!?!?
Here’s the deal I’m the best there is. Plain and simple. I wake up in the morning and I piss excellence.

Listenin’ to my girl Jana Kramer on the Texas highway. Felt like a dog with his head outside the window. =)
Caught up with my old friends Kevin and Kara. Good times.
Riding in their Mini, I couldn’t help but notice the resemblance to a famous mouse…
Finished off the night with some local stout beer. 9.1% alcohol. yikes!
Tomorrow, as L.L. would say, “Goin’ back to Cali.”
