I’m Going to Austin for the Weekend!

22 Jun

I’ve been traveling all night and have finally been reunited with my long-toothed canine friend, Ms. Maggie Mae (glamor shot featured below). I’ll be out with the family in Austin this weekend, so there won’t be much time for blogging.

But, because everything is BIGGER in Texas, this post has two quotes AND two pictures (you’re welcome):

“Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word.” – John Steinbeck

All good dogs go to Texas! Says Maggie Mae: “Ooh, I just LOVE the Lone Star State!”

And, from the creator of Lonesome Dove:

Only a rank degenerate would drive 1500 miles across Texas without eating a chicken fried steak.” ― Larry McMurtry

Mr. McMurtry forgot to mention the 7-inch lemon meringue pies from Elgin that are so airy they nearly float off the plate. You have to be a true rank degenerate to skip on one of those mouth-watering delectations.

A whopper of a pie

Until we meet again, bye-bye y’all.
