You Know You're In Texas When...

As the centerpiece of our living room, the oh so lovely built-ins were knocked out on the bottom by the old owners to make room for a TV. But there ain't no way that any doggone television set would take a higher spot that the "focal point" of the room: the gun case. A shrine for rifles, complete with glass doors. Just in case you've gotten REALLY lost, you can just glance at the address numbers painted on the curb and know what state you're in. While priming over all the dark green trim in the game room, I discovered that even door casing can be a tribute to the Lone Star State. "You all can go to hell. I am going to Texas." -- Davy Crockett after serving three terms as a Tennessee congressman.

  2. Remember my parent took out their drawers to put their tv on the ground. It was how everyone was doin it. I am just glad they didnt have a gun case above it.
