Just a girl rambling around the globe and writing about it.

Musings from around the block and farther.

You know you're in Texas when...

My dad manages a self-storage center in a small city in northeast Texas, about an hour from Dallas. He sent me this email today:

"A few minutes ago a woman came in and asked if we rented the buildings behind the office. I told her yes. She asked if we had one that opened up big enough to accommodate a wedding reception."

New business idea: a storage/wedding facility. Why lug all those unusable wedding gifts back home when you can just shove 'em into a 10x10 right there??

Why I love Texas

Semi Truck on highway

Besides the big blue skies and wide open spaces, there are places that have huge billboards announcing their wares. Like this one, that my husband recently saw on a drive from Dallas to Texarkana:

Gun Range/Beef Jerky Depot

You just don't see that in Los Angeles.
