July in Texas


YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN TEXAS IN JULY WHEN. . . .

The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.

The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.

Hot water now comes out of both taps. You can make sun tea instantly.

You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.

The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.

You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.

You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.

You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.

Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, 'What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?'

You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.

The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.

Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

The cows are giving evaporated milk.

Ah, what a place to call home. God Bless The Great State of TEXAS!!! Wouldn't live anywhere else!

That was so funny! Especially the birds needing potholders!

Very clever - but I have to say it isn't making me want to move to Texas!!

Yes, yes, it's all true! Especially the hot water coming out of both taps. (rofl) "Tepid" water doesn't exist in Texas during July & Augst & part of Sept/Oct. And, still, I wouldn't live anywhere else. Texas, oh my Texas! :-)
