Living as a Jew In Texas!!!

It's been a while since I last posted and some of you probably think I fell off the map. Truth be told I have sold my home and moved from Long Island, NY to a town (soon to be named) in Texas. As you can imagine this is a big step for me in more ways then you can imagine. I can happily tell you however, that so far it's lived up to it's expectations and more. My wife loves the school that are children are enrolled in and I'm looking forward to a slower paced and better quality of life . My kids have already made friends that live close by so we could not be more thrilled about it. People here are from all over but most interestingly enough there is a large percentage of former Monsey residents for seemingly no reason in particular, they gravitated here. Stay tuned for more...

Psycho, I have a feeling when I'm finished hooking up with the local bands in Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio I could be busier than I was in NY which wasn't that busy :)

Texans own Ford trucks. If they do not, they all live on farms or ranches, and a horse is the main form of transportation. They slaughter words, and use nonsensical contractions, like "a'int" and "y'all". They eat three square meals of barbecue a day. There are many Catholics (Bible Belt). If they are not Catholics, they are either mega-liberals (Austin), mega-technological (any major Texas city), or are atheist hicks that do indeed ride horses. Sometimes they do wear jeans from Cavenders, along with cowboy boots and hats (maybe even spurs! oh boy!). If they live in rural areas, over 60% of men have copious amounts of facial hair. And of course, on our farms, we have at least one dog.
