You Might Be in Southwest Texas if...

You have a windmill pumping water somewhere on your property.
You know the difference between a butte and a mesa, between an arroyo and a draw.
Your closest neighbor lives across the another country.
You drive for 280 miles and pass through only two towns.
90% of the plants you encounter are armed with barbs.
You have to drive 190 miles round trip to shop at a "real" grocery store.
Most of the animals you encounter lick their lips and wonder if the human body is really 60% water.
The speed limit is 80 miles per hour... in the school zone.
The biggest local employer is the U.S. Border Patrol.
At every turn, you see vast unspoiled landscapes of beautiful natural scenery.
Target is something to shoot at, not a place to shop.
You're tempted to use a leaf blower to clean the dust off yourself at the end of the day to reduce the  mud flow in the shower.

The nearest Walmart is 200 miles away.
