It was 80 degrees and sunny on the Texas side of the Mexico border today.

Nice picture.

Oh, you can't read. Sorry, let me explain. Snow in south Arkansas makes me wish I was riding down in Mexico. Warmer climate and sunshine. Just wishing out loud....Sorry for your confusion.

I'll be heading back to Eagle Pass after the 1st. Warmer weather for sure. Then the railroad is talking about Laredo....I'll get the sunscreen back out....

There's one of those Mexican chiminea thingies in the right side of the picture.

It looks cold, wants to go home, and needs a ride.

Yeah,
Down here in Mississippi our reading isn't on a par with the smart people in Arkansas.

Now that made me laugh! I had to google the illiteracy rates of the two states, and Arkansas came out slightly ahead with an illiteracy rate of 14% vs 16% for Mississippi. Sorry Ace. But both of you take heart. You'll fit in fine down here south of the border where the rate of illiteracy is about 13.9% .

Thank God I am not originally from Mississippi, but since I've been here 34 years out of 65, I guess it doesn't matter.

I grew up in Kentucky. Always 2nd to last in educational spending, literacy, you name it. And my father's motto was always "Thank God for Mississippi" because at the time they were always consistently dead last in the country.

If you take out the snow and outdoor heater and the trees, replace the background with a desert mountain range backdrop with a burro and a bottle of tequilla...it would look just like Mexico
