Start Your Engines

A night at the races for the Verizon IndyCar Series at Texas Motor Speedway, home of Big Hoss, the world’s largest HDTV screen that is nearly a half-acre in size and nine stories tall.

There is an abundance of patriotism going on at this 248 lap race. The race doesn’t start without a prayer, a fighter jet flyer, the fireworks at the end and as you leave the track you see Big Hoss’s backside, our country’s flag.  God Bless Texas!

Oh, and the best corn dog I ever had – never new there was a corn dog worth mentioning.

 

There is a Name for Us

Yup, that is what I was told as we were packing up and moving to Texas. “There is a name that native Texans will call you,” said a coworker to me. This was one of many comments I heard, not all were supportive sounding either. I guess that was jealousy speaking.

Why did we choose Texas?  I might say that our 2016 adventure to Waco and the 2nd Annual Silo Bration had something to do with it…

In reality, God answered hubby’s prayers with a wonderful work opportunity, so here we are!

Now that we are here, I can honestly say that we couldn’t be happier. The only thing I have heard native Texans say so far is “Welcome to Texas”  and “Yes ma’am”. The person handling my car registration, the servers waiting on us, the cashier at the grocery…they all seem happy to have us!

In being new to Texas, I feel it’s our responsibility to get to know the Lone Star State, so that is what LoneStarry.com is going to do. Get out there and share what we find. I hope you Explore, Eat and Enjoy with us!
