Well when I saw my first guinea hen...... honey I thought that was the biggest quail I'd ever seen!!!!!!!! Cause you know everything is bigger in Texas!!!!

I agree
Hi Suga,

That's a funny story, and believable because guineas bear more than a superficial resemblance to quail, and they are way bigger.

I lived in Fort Worth for many years, and it was HOT. The Texas weathermen wouldn't say a day was hot unless the daytime temperature got into the triple digits. And it did frequently. As you say, everything is bigger in Texas.

I tip my hat to you.
