The Eyes of Texas are upon you.

    A cowpoke in West Texas was herding longhorn cattle one day when he heard
    faint music coming from nearby. After hunting about for a time, he discovered the
    sound was loudest near one particular calf, and was even louder near the calf's
    tail. Putting his head close to the calf's hind end, he heard, "The eyes of Texas
    are upon you, all the live long day..."

    Amazed, he tossed the longhorn calf over his horse's back, mounted and rode
    quickly to his line shack 10 miles away. There he put the calf into his truck and
    drove 74 miles to Ft. Stockton, where he took the animal to a vet.

    When the vet asked him what was going on, the cowpoke told him, and the vet
    went around behind the calf and gave a listen, too. He agreed he heard "The eyes
    of Texas are upon you, you cannot get away..." but didn't seem particularly

    "Man, how can you stand there and not be amazed?" the cowpoke asked.

    The vet, a third generation Okie, said, "Bud, I'm a Sooner, and I've been
    listening to *******s sing the "Eyes of Texas" all of my life.":D

    Nothing personal meant. I could have changed the names of the states but thought the Texas... Oklahoma rivalry would create some fun.
  4. OK-- Then why not Kansas? After all isn't Dorothy from there.--OZ.

    Oxford G&G Evangelist that's getting personal. (ha)

    What other state would you include with Kansas? Since I live 361 miles east of Dodge City, KS I'm out of that state so maybe we could use KS and MO. What about using TX and AR, or MO and CO, or NE and OK or some other combo?:D
