Real Texans don't know how to pronounce shit!

They call Llano, "lah no!

They call Alvarado, "All vah ray doh"

They call Nevada, "Nuh Vay duh"

They call small undulations in the topography, "The Hill Country"

They call Greune, "green"

They call Boerne, "Ber knee"

They call Palestine, "Pal uh steen"

Oh, and I'm sure I'll catch flack for this, but I'm a Texan now, and I'm being reeducated. All Y'all ull see, I'm fixin to git er done right soon.

I hope all my Texas brethren took my comments as being tongue in cheek. This being Advrider, we all type as if we're on margarita #4 from a loud honky tonk.

My apologies if I offended.

I'll be on the bike a bit this weekend. Perhaps a few more pics.

Being as I am a transplant from (all over the country) (moved around abit) I am enjoying Texas quite nicely, but would relish the chance to take a weekend/week to explore the Hill country and the "sisters" with you Lobby if you ever wish for some company. I have enjoyed some of your banter and expressions in the many posts I have had the pleasure to read. enjoy the washing away of the cabin fever.......

It would be a joy. You know, I oughta be more active in the Tx Regional forum here. I just never post the ride announcements.

Perhaps we'll do a Coopers BBQ in Llano soon. But before you can come, you gotta pass the pronunciation test.

Humble = "UMble"
Llano = Yaa noo
and for the Rest all I can suggest is a bunch of Texan's that "used" to be from Germany........
