It is Springtime in San Antonio

I have such a green thumb. I shelled out 75 bucks to our yardman, 100 bucks to our landscaper, and they made me look like a hero in our neighbor. Trees are budding, flowers are blooming and I love it. There is nothing quite like Springtime in San Antonio and the Hill Country of Texas. I guess somebody has to live in Anchorage, Alaska or Piggott, Arkansas. I am just glad I get to live in Texas. I hear it rising up within even as I write. “Texas our Texas, all hail the mighty State, Texas our Texas so wonderful and great.....“ I am sure someone just surfed by this sight and is having a real problem about me being so proud of being a Texan. I guess I could move to Alaska and contend with the weather, or maybe someone wants to move to Texas (San Antonio) and enjoy this beautiful Springtime with me. Well, I seem to have said enough to upset a few folks who aren't Texans. GOODBYE.

I'm a Texan transplanted a few years ago from a northern state. I agree with your sentiments.

It's cold and rainy here in the big city of Piggott, Ar. Wish I were in Texas!
