THE BOOTS WERE MADE IN 1979

Bob “Daddy-O” Wade (1943-2019) was known for his over-the-top art back in the day and was asked to build something ‘BIG’ for a lot in Washington D.C. and he came up with the boots!. Shortly after that, the boots were transferred to San Antonio, Texas. Make sense that they end up in Texas, right?

IN 2016 GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS  MADE IT OFFICIAL!

In 2016, Guinness World Record recognized the boots as the WORLDS LARGEST and still has the title today. Dan was able to see his Guniess accomplishment back in 2016.

Seriously, if you ask a Texan how to get somewhere, we aren’t going to tell you it’s about 56 miles to the west. We’re going to tell you it’s about an hour and a half to the west…and that’s if you don’t go during rush hour. You can drive halfway to a state 2 states from here, and still be in Texas. We don’t have time to calculate miles, we just know it’s far and it’s going to take some time to get there.

Our skylines, our highways, our trucks, our standards. It’s not just a saying you’ll hear in a movie, or see on a cheesy postcard you take back home with you to Virginia…things really ARE bigger here. We love it that way.

So piggy backing off all of the things that are big here, have you been to the Texas State Fair? We’ve got the biggest and best food, Big Tex you can see from the highway, and the biggest rides. We’re missing out on all of this fun this year, but you can bet we’ve got our eyes on 2021.

I didn’t think twice about these beauties in school. Like, I wonder if other schools do this…outside of Texas? Nope, never crossed my mind. But here in Texas, this is HOMECOMING in high school. The bigger the mum, the better. If it has bells…bonus! These things are worn all homecoming week, and to the homecoming football game that Friday night.

Whether you’re sporting burnt orange and white (Hook Em’), Texas Tech red and black, Baylor green and gold, TCU purple and white, or for whatever reason, Texas A&M maroon and white, here in Texas, football is everything. It’s what brings our families and friends together on a Friday night…a Saturday night…or heck, even a Sunday evening. It’s what we do. We’re passionate about that team on our chest, and there’s no doubt about that.

Why you want to go to lunch at 11 AM? I know the perfect BBQ spot (here’s lookin’ at you Stanley’s)! Yeah, we can eat BBQ any time of day, for any holiday – especially if there’s football involved. Having a baby shower? I’ll bring the ribs! It’s hard to mess up BBQ here.

Yes, we have tacos for breakfast here. For lunch, and for dinner too, y’all. It’s something that’s so simple, yet so delicious. Now I want some.

If you order unsweet tea here, you’re going to get the craziest looks. Some may even tell you, the only way to drink unsweet tea is to pour it down the sink. It’s not a lie.

When we call you ma’am or sir, it’s not because we think of you as ‘the elderly’. It means we were raised with some dang respect. Manners go far here, and it’s noticeable when you don’t have any. Don’t worry, we’ll let you know when we pick up on that with a ‘bless your heart’.

Yeah, winter doesn’t last too long around these parts. Now, some parts of Texas get A LOT more snow than the places you’re probably more familiar with…ya know, Dallas, Houston, and totally Instagram photo-worthy Austin? But really, we don’t plan for a winter. It literally takes this much ice on the ground to cancel school.

Ok, we’re not as happy as this guy in the cold, but “cold” in Texas – like I said before – doesn’t last long. Winter is just a small break from the heat for a while. But you bet we’re back in those heat temps come April.

And you can bet we’re stopping on the side of the interstate to get some family photos there. Even if they’re just pics of our pups. You won’t find a Texan that doesn’t have a bluebonnet photo or statue or something in their home…that’s if they’re doing it right.

When it’s rodeo season in Texas you will KNOW IT. And we’re talking about that cute little petting zoo in Ohio they call a rodeo. We’re not talking the biggest bulls, the most handsome cowboys, the best food, and King George himself all in one loud, and rockin’ place. Winner takes all here.

One does not simply take a stroll through Texas and not stop at Buc-cee’s. It just doesn’t happen. Also, good luck getting out of there with just a Dr. Pepper. It’s not gonna happen. You’re leaving with a t-shirt, mug, hat, and a giant Texas welcome mat for your door in Nebraska.

East Texas, this one’s for you. If you have a dance team that performs at halftime at your high school, or a professional team that you see do meet-and-greets at AT&T Stadium, they all have the Kilgore College Rangerettes to thank. Gussie Nell Davis literally created the halftime experience with drill teams and dance teams alike. Without her wit and drive, things could look a lot different today. The Kilgore College Rangerettes are world famous for a reason.

We have towns you’ll just not know how to pronounce. It’s just a known fact. That’s how we know a native from a visitor. Give these a try: Waxahachie, Nacogdoches, Pedernales, and Palacios.

I’m sure you get it now. Our little history lesson was just a sped up version of what a true Texas experience is like. There’s no other place like it on the planet…state or country. And you can bet we’re gonna stay Texas proud til the day we die. Let your friends know all about it when you get back to Oklahoma.
