Chicago based company had a branch office in El Paso.

Chicago home office calls the branch manager in El Paso and asked him to go to Texarkana to check out a location for another branch office in Texarkana since he was already in Texas.

El Paso manager tells the Chicago manager to go check it out for himself since he was closer to Texarkana than El Paso is. (by 19 miles. True)

1 There's a white circle on the back pockets of a lot of Wranglers called a Skoal ring. 2 A lot of these comments remind me of the chorus of "Cotton eyed Joe" 3 And to quote Guy Clark," Cook them enchiladas greasy,make them steaks chicken fried, sure does make a man feel hungry, to see white gravy on the side".

Ok then, I will have to check this Texas place out!! I thought that maybe the gallons of fuel would be bigger there but then reason told me the miles would be longer. All kidding aside I have always wanted to come and see, and sample real Texas BBQ. Maybe next year.

How I remember, November '56 driving home from S. Carolina to California and stopped for the night somewhere in Texas. Went to a diner next to a motel and ordered a chicken fried steak and a side order of fries. Waitress said "Sugah or maybe it was Honey Ya'll don't need the fries and if ya do I'll buy them for ya". She was right to this day best I ever had and filling a 21 year old X GI I thought was impossible.

Well, Sunday a bunch of the Texas Boomers and an apopted stray couple from Oregon, attacked Goodson's in Tomball, TX for chicken fried and all the trimmings. With my Chicken fried steak, I had smashed 'taters and black-eyed peas. Had a big old yeast roll covered with gravy to finish off the meal. Then for desert, hot peach cobbler with a scoop of Blue Bell Homemade vanilla.

Now that is Texas eatin' at it's finest.

No, but holyguacamole is. It's normally served at Texas church potluck dinners.

I notice that Francesca was the first to use the term. Must be something off that pseudo-Texan Washington restaurant's menu.

Mr. Wilson, sir, you are dead meat. How dare you post something like that. I may just ban you from eating some of the ribs that I will be smokin for the rally. I think you know how I cook my ribs. If not, I know for a fact that Rusty and Sandy do. By the way, Janell may just might not allow you to have some of the peach cobbler she is makin. And I know, you know how she can cook.

According to a definition that I just made up, "holymolyguacamole" is a Tex-Mex-ican term referring to any plate upon which mole chicken is next to guacamole.

The "holy" part comes in when the vict- er, "diner" prays for relief from the spiciness of the sauce....
