More From the Feedstore

Those who venture into Caneyhead regularly know about the Feedstore.  Had to run up there yesterday evening, like so many days, to get a few things.  Saw dear Bro. Ard in the parking lot as I was about to leave.  He was on his way to the deer lease.  But he had a word of testimony for me.  A true bonified miracle!  Seems preacher C.W. has already been doing some hunting.  He saw three deer walk out into the clearing near his stand.  He picked out one, took aim, and fired.  Then he proceeded to get down to go and see what exactly he had.  Imagine his surprise and his resounding praise to God Almighty when he saw laying there, not one, but TWO DEER!!  Both killed by the same shot!  So, apparently there's no need for our little church to wonder or worry....we definitely have a pastor anointed of God!!         

Now, while I'm feeling all cocky and full of fire, I'll share with you an email my niece Paige sent over from Conroe.  It's a good one.

                                                  RULES OF TEXAS


1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot.

2. Let's get this straight; it's called a "gravel road." I drive a
    pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you're
    going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.

3. They are cattle & oil wells. That's what they smell like to you.
    They smell like money to us. Get over it. Don't like it? I-20 and
     I-10 go east and west, I-35 goes north and south. Pick one.

4. So you have a $60,000 car. We're impressed. We have $250,000
    cotton strippers that are driven only 3 weeks a year.

5. So every person in every pickup waves. It's called being friendly. 
    Try to understand the concept.

6. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of doves are coming in, we
    WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better hope you don't have it up
    to your ear at the time.

7. Yeah, we eat catfish & crawfish. You really want sushi & caviar?
    It's available at the corner bait shop.

8. The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season. It's a
    religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November

9. We open doors for women. That is applied to all women, regardless
    of age.

10. No, there's no "vegetarian special" on the menu. Order steak. Or
      you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham &

11. When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes: meats,
      vegetables, and breads. We use three spices: salt, pepper, and Picante
      Sauce!! Oh, yeah....We don't care what you folks in Cincinnati call
      that stuff you eat...IT AIN' T REAL CHILI!! Chili was born and bred in
      San Antonio ....and real chili never met a bean!

12. You bring "coke" into my house, it better be brown, wet, and
      served over ice. You bring "Mary Jane" into my house, she better be
      cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair.

13. College and High School Football is as important here as the
      Lakers and the Knicks, and a dang site more fun to watch.

14. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don't hit the water hazards
      -- it spooks the fish.

15. Colleges? Try Texas Tech, Texas A&M or University of Texas . They
      come outta there with an education plus a love for God and country,
      and they still wave at passing pickups when they come for the

16. We have more folks in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines,
      than any other state, so "Don't Mess with Texas ," If you do, you will
      get whupped by the best.

17. Always remember what our great governor Sam Houston once
     said:  "Texas can make it without the United States, but the
     United States can't make it without Texas!"


  1. Yea " Hook 'Em Horns". Do you get all the gossip at the feed store? The woman who runs the store at John's hometown near where his cattle are knows everything and I mean everything that is going on. She can throw a sack of feed over her shoulder and drive a front end loader as good as any man. Paula

  2. Good for your Pastor. I hope he either has room to freeze them or give some of that meat away. LOL .Deer hunting season opened here today. I haven't heard any report from any family members as to where thry got one or not.
    The mail from your neice was cute. Hugs,Helen

  5. I especially like the sushi and caviar at the bait shop comeback!!  Speaking about your pastor getting a two fer one special, that happened to my hubby once when he was fishing with a double hook, had a fish on- a real fighter, but when he finally got it up to the boat (a nice camo job with no motor- we can go anywhere in it that bass boats get caught in!!!) anyway, he had two on one hook!  He was so excited that day- and still reminices!LOL  I do love your Texas rules!
