This here's whatcha call a TRUCK in TEXAS!

Yep... this is a Texas Truck... and I know because this is my near 6-foot tall, Texas "born n' bred", son-in-law... Standin' here by his brand new Ford F250, 4 wheel-drive, king cab.... Texas Truck...

Son... ya done good... just remember to throw a ladder in the truck bed before ya'll come over to take us out to dinner... otherwise, I'm gonna need a sky-hook to git up in that thang...

ps... I hope yor little wife told ya I was gonna post this picture... ;)

pss... I have just been informed that an automatic step has already installed for use by us old broads (mother and mother-in-law) and one young pretty wife...

Just doin' our part to stimulate the economy down here in French Lique...

Good for you! All Texas boys need a big truck! Even some of us Texas Gals drive trucks, of course mine isn't that big, I would need an esculator to get in that thing

We do grow 'em big down here in Texas don't we? And by that I mean trucks! My son has one of those ginormous things too...he put slide out steps on it otherwise his momma wouldn't stand a snowball chance of ever getting up in it. It's still a show to watch and believe me they do.
Hey, btw, that's one good looking guy you got there! Everything really is bigger and better in Texas!

Not just in Texas. We have lots of those in Alabama, too, and they all have Rebel flags in the rear window along with gun racks.

Dixie, You are TOO funny! Did you intend to type "MONTHER-In-Law"? Or, was that a type O? ;))) I'd just love to ride on in to TX and have tea with you some day! And., please., don't make me say French Lick., I like it when it sounds French with "lique". ;))))) I'm silly today... ~Bless you friend! ~CC Catherine

Well, I'm so glad you're doing your part! Now please tell me why these guys want those things so darned high in the first place? Do they fear flooding?

You do need a ladder -- or a crane to get in there!
My office is now painted a neutral tan. I'll decorate with blue.
