Where did I live in Texas?

The first question posed was by Paula. She asked where I lived in Texas. Please refer to the map above and listen.

By the way, you can create your own map by clicking on the word "map" above. The map is brought to you by Texas Cooperative Extension, Texas A&M University System (and me).

Special note to Alphawoman: I'll send you an email with the answer.

Hey Robbie, I lived in Cameron County for the first 18 years of my life. LOL... I was so Glad to get out. I am in Central TX now. I love This area. San Antonio is Great also. I have only visited LA, but Loved Every minute of it.
Have a Great Day. Your audio entries are Too Cool.

A) Your voice is fine. This is the second audio entry I listened to and I think you sound great. Nice, relaxed, smooth.

C) I'm sorry you had to live in Texsucks. That is all I'm going to say about that.

Well, you don't sound like George Bush. LOL! You sound wonderful. Thanks for the geography lesson too. I'm so bad (always was) at geography and this was like a little lesson. : ) I'm going to see if they have other states. I've only lived in NY (except for two years in CA) but this looks like fun.

ok.  cool.  so that's where you lived in TX.  I have been through San Antonio--sorry I'm a bad speller. It is a lovely place.  A lot of TX though, I didn't really like...driving through though, it's hard to really get a grip on places.  But, I did like San An, we ate at a Mc Donalds there. :)

The east part of the state looks like it needs Viagra. Probably just those drunks from LA doodling during the Purchase.

Love the audio entry! We lived at Ft. Hood and visited San Antonio on some weekends.

Thanks for your answer. Maybe our paths crossed at some time. I lived in San Antonio for 31 years, but now I am back in the county I was born in. You have a nice voice. Paula

Very Impressed with your audio-visual skills in this-here Journal!  :-)  Albert

I knew there was a reason I liked you.  You're a closet Texan!!  That means you're good people!  :D  Jeez... you lived RIGHT on the border.  Had a boyfriend from down that way when I was in high school.  Mando from Rio Hondo.  He was such a cutie!    San Antonio is a beautiful, not to mention fun, city!  We haven't been out that way in years, but spoke recently about making a weekend trip sometime after we move in the house.  Fun!

Great voice, by the way!  Totally *fits* you.  :D

Wow, that's the coolest thing!  I love your audio entries.  Woohoo!  Looking at this map, it's clear, Texas really is big!  Yikes!  I didn't realize you lived there so long.  You must've moved quite a few times in the same year - often!

FREEE: Texas is as big as the day is long. Uh huh! :::hock-pooey:::: Umm, move, and move, and move. I moved to Cameron County in April of my Junior year by that fall we moved to a new house. Before I graduated my mom was splitting her time between San Antonio and Los Fresnos. When I graduated, she left. I stayed in Los Fresnos until it was time for me to go in the Army. Always moving. Still am.

SLO: No closet Texan. I got there as soon as I could and stayed as long as I could. The economy in Dallas sucked (for me anyhow) and that’s one of the reasons I eventually moved out here. We played Rio Hondo in football. I remember this one cute player. Oh yeah, they grew some cuties over there. I had a friend in San Antonio named Mando. I guess in Texas everyone has at least one.  So my voice fits me? Is that a nice way of saying I sound as bitchy as I write. ;-p

ALBERT: Audio-visual skills? Are you calling me a nerd? ;-)

PAULA: It’s quite possible. I worked for Jim’s Restaurant either as a waitress or a manager my entire time that I lived in San Antone.

GGAL: I knew some people at Ft. Hood when I was living in Dallas. I went to AIT in San Antonio. I think that’s when I first fell in love with it. Whenever we could, we were down on the Riverwalk.

SCREMO: Yeah, there’s a lot of drunks in TX. Shoot! For many of years, I was one of the biggest.

BABYSHARK: Bad speller? I don’t see anything wrong. To take a biblical quote and twist it a little, love covers over a multitude of wrongs so I don’t notice and I hope you won’t notice mine. :-) I love San Antonio. To me, it’s a city with a hometownish feel. (How’s that for creating your own words?)

ANGELA: Thank goodness I don’t sound like Bush! I’ve lived all over the U.S., as such I have a hodge-podge of a voice. Northerners say I sound Southern and Southerners say I sound Northern. There’s something there for everyone to pick on me about and they have.

krobbie67 said...

GORDY: Smooth? I would have said raspy and nasally. But, thanks! I’m sorry you feel that way about Texas. I am quite fond of the state, in spite of the fact that Bush hails from there.  

CHRISTINA: ummm, yes….come back and answer.

KATE: Yeah, “the Valley” isn’t the greatest place to live. It’s the kind of place that is nice to visit though. I loved going over to Mexico and whenever I could I was out on South Padre Island.

VINCE: Thank you! It’s still sounds strange to me but hopefully a little better than I did when I was sick. :-)

How nice to hear the sound of your voice!  I lived in Houston for 2 years during a big employment boom.  It was not for me, but I enjoyed my time there and my brother and his family live there still.  And Ann Richards is a fine Texas foil for Dubya!  :)

TXSGUINAN: I’m not a big fan of Houston either. It’s smoggy, congested, and smells like oil refineries. However, I did find a cool jazz bar there. And, I love Ann Richards! She’s spunky and intelligent. A definite foil for the D.
