“We used to categorize women,” said Ken,”we compared them to boats.” “There would be the sailboats, the battleships, the aircraft carriers, the row boats and then there would be the inner tubes. I think it is a little harder to categorize women these days.” We were driving to lunch to meet many women, and a couple of men who wanted to know more about Burma. “The lady who set this up is definitely an aircraft carrier,” said Ken as we walked into the restaurant. I asked him what kind of boat he thought it was the easiest to get along with and he said that was a row boat for sure.
It has been a good day with much talking and great company. I feel a little like an inner tube now myself. Dinner tonight was yummy, but not short on calories.
Did you know that there is more than 16 million cattle in Texas? And did you know that people cannot carry around a fence cutter or a pair of pliers that could cut a fence here in Texas? It is also illegal to shoot a buffalo from the second story of a hotel. Another rule from the city of Odessa, which is just around the corner from where I am staying: the Star of David and the peace symbol are forbidden by the city’s dress code, since they are considered to be Satanic symbols. And last, but not least: In Texas, it’s illegal to put graffiti on someone else’s cow.
This I have learned today. Thought it could be interesting for people to know these facts about the Lone star state. Leave your fence cutters and pliers at home if you are planning on coming here. And don’t even think about painting the neighbor’s cow!
