Notes from Site Administration:

1. I turned this post into a slide show, using my magic Site Administrator skilz.
2. West Texas is not really renowned for its scenic beauty. I don’t know why Dave posted this.
3. Dave’s truck recently had it’s registration renewed, meaning it passed the Texas vehicle inspection. Note the blue sticker on the lower left corner of his windshield. This is a cause for celebration in his part of Texas, where most of the trucks are stolen, unregistered, and belch blue smoke when they exceed 45 mph.

wow west Texas is desolate.

2. Michael - May 7, 2011

Not entirely. Apparently there is one big ole live oak tree out there.

3. daveintexas - May 7, 2011

I passed a bunch of em, but I had to maintain 82mph, so I missed a few.

4. Michael - May 7, 2011

That’s the good thing about West Texas. Speed limit signs are sort of a necessary formality that everyone ignores.

Note to non-Texans: You can see that the roads have no bends, no traffic, and the visibility is about three miles ahead. Also, out there, the county sheriff has maybe one deputy for every 4,576 miles of road. Thus, high speeds are the norm. The cops generally ignore this, unless you have Michigan license plates.

5. Michael - May 7, 2011

What I’m sayin’ is — in West Texas a lot of rednecks have velcro patches glued to the bottom of their gas pedal and below that to the floor of their truck. That’s their version of “cruise control.”

6. BrewFan - May 7, 2011

Huh. No goat ropers. Go figure.

7. Michael - May 7, 2011

Also, if you study the hood of Dave’s truck, I’m pretty sure it is not any part of the Ford F-series trucks.

That means Dave is gay. OK, you already knew that, but now you have photographic evidence.

Man I shore miss those wide open spaces.

10. kevlarchick - May 8, 2011

Looks like a bit of a traffic back up in one of those pics. Two oncoming and one up ahead. A regular gridlock.

11. Retired Geezer - May 8, 2011

most of the trucks are stolen, unregistered, and belch blue smoke when they exceed 45 mph.

if you study the hood of Dave’s truck, I’m pretty sure it is not any part of the Ford F-series trucks.

Those two statements combine in a Synergistic Manner.

Dave didn’t show any photos of the rear of his non-Ford Rig, (Idahodian for Truck).

Therefore, I conclude it already belches smoke.

12. Tushar - May 8, 2011

Dave, what truck is that?

13. Retired Geezer - May 8, 2011

Dave, what truck is that?

I didn’t know that Zaporozhets made Trucks.

14. Dave in Texas - May 8, 2011

Yeah, traffic was bad that day.

It’s a 2006 Chevy Silverado extended cab. It’s my favorite kind of truck.

Paid for.

15. Tushar - May 8, 2011

>>Paid for.

That is my favorite kind of vehicle too.

16. Tushar - May 8, 2011

OT: So far the Administration has not given out a single piece of evidence hat Osama is dead, yet I am sure he is dead. How? Robert Gates was in that room. The seals and the entire Naval hierarchy was directly or indirectly involved. There was no way they could have faked it.

Now a question for the 9/11 conspiracy mongers: How exactly do you think President Bush caused 9/11 without anyone coming forward and claiming that the admin is lying?

17. daveintexas - May 8, 2011

It’s the birth certificate thing all over again. We don’t have to placate the philistines, we know things which we don’t have to prove, because we’re in charge here.

On an unrelated note, when are you and your bride and those two beautiful little boys gonna move to Texas? I will get them hats and boots.

18. kevlarchick - May 8, 2011

Tushar, don’t do it. Just no.
The hats and boots I mean.
But go to Texas, by all means.

19. daveintexas - May 8, 2011

don’t listen to her. Hats. Boots.

20. Lipstick - May 8, 2011

Oh hell yeah hats and boots!

I have two hats and a pair of beat up ropers. Do you know that as an adult your feet can still grow/expand? That’s why the Salvation Army has my other two pairs of boots.

Shush up!

21. Dave in Texas - May 8, 2011

I heard that could happen.

22. Tushar - May 8, 2011


I recently changed jobs. These bastards keep on giving me better and better pay, making it well nigh impossible to pull up the stakes and move. Maybe in another couple of years….

23. Tushar - May 8, 2011

Kevlar, I believe in one thing: When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

when I move to Texas, I don’t plan on doing as the Texans do. I want to become a Texan.

24. Dave in Texas - May 8, 2011
25. Mitchell - May 8, 2011

Nice pictures. I’ve got better ones though: The Tree Is Done – BEHOLD!

26. Lipstick - May 9, 2011

How can it be that I lose 20 pounds, but my fingers are fatter? Just had to get my wedding ring sized up.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot????

27. kevlarchick - May 9, 2011

20 pounds! You go girl.
Don’t worry about the fat fingers. I have them too. I got my ring sized up after being married 10 years as a matter of course; the constant swelling from the fistfights were killing me. How long have you been married?

28. Lipstick - May 9, 2011

haha, married 5 years last month and it feels like 5 weeks.

29. daveintexas - May 9, 2011

It’s not fat, it’s muscle-growth from clenching your fists when us dudes do cool but annoying things, which is, pretty much everything we do.

30. Lipstick - May 9, 2011

It’s crazy, but Mr. L doesn’t annoy me at all.

He says that it’s because he’s sneakily replacing my Folgers with happy pills.

31. Lipstick - May 9, 2011

KC, you’re funny — hope we can be neighbors in Texas some day!

32. daveintexas - May 9, 2011

me too.

me. too.

33. Lipstick - May 9, 2011

Everybody (well, just the good people) move to Texas!!!

34. kevlarchick - May 10, 2011

Lips,let’s plan on it. Just so you know, I do not like the big city. Or neighborhood’s like Michael’s – we simply would not be allowed to live there. Too much redneck genes.

Mr Kevlar does not annoy me at all. Took a coupla years to get used to his vibe. We married very fast, so I knew nothing about the feller. But we settled down just fine.

35. BrewFan - May 10, 2011

We married very fast

Mrs. BrewFan and I dated for a month then I got transferred to Florida. Next time I saw her was six months later. At our wedding. We too had to ‘adjust’ the first few years.
