Thread: Heading to Texas!
#1 Heading to Texas!02-19-2013, 01:19 PM
I've been too busy getting ready for this to get the word out. The company that runs the prison I work for has several other prisons in Texas, decisions were made here that there are too many issues in this little Arizona town, our family and friends are still in the Midwest, applications were sent in, and one was finally approved. Monday morning is the first day, I'll be on the road this weekend.
Admittedly, the CO job is just to get me down there. The Dallas/Ft. Worth area has stacks of IT jobs listed, a few conversations with some agencies indicate I've got a pretty good shot at getting one of them once I have a TX address. The wife and kids are are going to finish out the school year here in AZ, by which time I should have one of those better paying, more intellectually stimulating jobs. Taking a pay cut for the move, which is really going to suck, but the long term benefits should be well worth it.Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

Good for you, and wishing you all the best.....

You really should love it there. Most folks we knew, plus our neighbors, were from out of state as were we. Of all the states in which we have lived, Texas was the friendliest to newcomers. Even bought Mr. ABC and I "Naturalised Texan" tee shirts.
It gets beastly hot in the summer in the late afternoon as I remember (lived in Plano) and needed to water outdoor plants in pots twice a day.
(One day when temps were over a hundred several days in a row guy on radio said to try frying an egg outdoors ... which just for laughs I did in an iron frypan. Guess what? It cooked!)
Also, the spring time is the time to watch out for tornadoes.
Other than that, you will love it there. If things continue on this downhill spiral in regard to our freedoms because of this administration, I told son and daughter-in-law to look out ... we will be heading back there to live for sure!
Poor things!Considered a black sheep by my mixed-bag of Liberal nutcase family members ... but still love them all anyway!!!

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Forgot to mention one more thing Enslaved one,
I also loved the billboards, bumper-stickers, and tee shirts that said ...
"Don't Mess With Texas!"
Great line, as well as a warning!Considered a black sheep by my mixed-bag of Liberal nutcase family members ... but still love them all anyway!!!

It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
