Oh Texas. I love you, in your ways that are so different than California. Also family! And BBQ. Particularly Goode Company in Houston. Cowboy boots, sombreros, Marble Slab Creamery with its unlimited mix-ins; tex-mex and fresh guac, the tiny town of Matagorda; the gulf, whose waters are startlingly warm to the feet of this northern California girl; giant mosquitos and their evil blood sucking shenanigans; sweet tea and conviviality; bayous and spanish moss; heat lightning and cicadas; the zoo in 90 degree weather with 100% humidity; helicopter rides over the gulf and some wild piggies that take off from a neighbor’s front lawn just because someone knows someone else and everyone is wonderful and friendly and nice; and giant, GIANT swaths of flat, open landscape: everything is bigger in Texas!

Until next time, my adopted state! I’m so glad I have family there so I have an excuse to go traipsing around and visiting.

Love to ya’ll from Texas!
