1. You'll need a six pack and a pistol with you as well.
I think it's a state law that all drivers have these items with them at all times.

31. As someone who has worn that uniform, a piece of advice.
Edited on Tue Aug-09-05 03:26 PM by achtung_circus
Lose the black felt hat.

Get a natural straw hat that breathes or your head will explode.

If you want western footwear, get "ropers" (AKA lacers). More comfortable, better for walking and equally cowboy.

Long-sleeved, light coloured shirt.

There are good reasons cowboys dress the way they do.

68. Another vote for a straw hat!
It's too hot for the black felt. Ropers really are better for walking. Light colors, generally.

Plenty of sunscreen, too.

32. A couple of things from a Cheeshead who lived 5 years in Texas
If it don't stick you, sting you, kick you, or squish under yer foot, it's probably not a native Texan...

With respect to the pricky sticky stuff...I'd advise leather shoes. Opuntia and sand burrs play hell with sneakers.

Also dump the dark colors in the day time. You'll be plenty hot without the black t-shirt.

37. For this trip through Texas, take a picture with a DEMOCRATIC statue.
There's a Barbara Jordan statue in the Austin airport. Hell of a lot better than Poppy's in Intercontinental in Houston.

Uh...that hat looks like it will absorb heat.

undercover cop? Maybe a narc. That image might not be so bad. Has genuine strangeness, but a little scary--you might be a nut, esp with that black get-up. Fear and Loathing in Crawford... If anybody gives you any trouble just get real still and look straight in their eyes and stay real quiet, even when spoken to. That would be Texan threat posture.

thanx for the best laugh Ive had today. Say a big howdy to the fine folks at the Lazy Dubya from all their buddies at DU...

63. You should have shorts, bluejeans are to hot, a strawhat, and you don't
need cowboy boots.

I don't know where this idea comes from that all Texans wear cowboy hats and cowboy boots, I don't and my family came to Texas in the 1820's. Just dress for the heat, light colors and drink water, water, and more water.



I hate Bush with his fake Texan act, his accent does come and go.



Could you talk to someone at KPFT and see if they could do something for Cindy, they should have someone covering this 24 hours a day.

Take care, and drink lots of water.

One more thing, watch out for fire ants.

64. Well, black is not a good color to wear in the sun.
It attracts the rays and makes you hotter.

Other then that, black seems to be your color. Very nice. Jeff Gannon might try to snap a towel your way as he sneaks past y'all to get to his tryst with George.

Good luck!

66. Look for a rancher's hat, straw, with three vents on each side
that will keep your head cool with ventilation. Either that or a stetson or Panama hat that is lossely woven.

I'm concerned the heat will kill you in that black hat, especially if there is no venting and if it is a heavy material.

Thanks for going! I wish I could be there. I'm only a few hundred miles away, but my husband is going to Toronto and I can't take my kids or get arrested.

80. Seriously, Will, lose the hat.
Edited on Wed Aug-10-05 03:56 AM by Maddy McCall
Unless you have a herd of Longhorns you've never mentioned, lose the hat. It's just not you.

If you MUST wear a cowboy hat, buy a straw one. You don't wear black felt hats in the summer in Texas.

85. you're an old cowhand
Oh, step aside, yall ornery tenderfeet
Cause Im about to sing my song
Im an old cowhand from the rio grande
But my legs aint bowed, and my cheeks aint tan
Well Im a cowboy who never saw a cow
Never roped a steer cause I dont know how
And I sure aint fixin to startin now
Oh, yippee-i-o-ki-ay, yippee-i-o-ki-ay

Im an old cowhand from the rio grande
And I learned to ride before I learned to stand
Well Im a ridin fool who is up to date
I know every trail in the lone star state
cause I ride the range in a ford v-8
Oh, yippee-i-o-ki-ay, yippee-i-o-ki-ay

Look out, Im gonna show yall how to ride now
Here we go

Im an old cowhand from the rio grande
And I come to town just to hear the band
I know all the songs that the cowboys know
bout the big corral where the dogies go
cause I learned them all on the radio
Oh, yippee-i-o-ki-ay, yippee-i-o-ki-ay

Now my storys almost done, so listen up!
You aint got much longer now

Im an old cowhand from the rio grande
Where the west is wild round the borderland
Where the buffalo roam around the zoo
And the indian make you a rug or two
And the old bar-x is the bar-be-cue
Oh, yippee-i-o-ki-ay, yippee-i-o-ki-ay

86. Way cute, Billy Bob. I don't know Texas, but I know sun...
Wide brim hat -- good
Black -- not so good in summer
SPF 45 sunscreen -- totally
Listen up to the folks here who do know Texas, and modify the outfit accordingly, as you wish. The line from Streets of Laredo occurs: I see by your outfit that you are no cowboy...

Anyhow, enjoy your trip, and be well.
