Observations, rants, etc. from a guy who really gets around.


"Where You From?"

One of the few down sides to all the travel I've done is that I'm forever running into the geography-impaired. Most of my real travel started while living in Albuquerque. I'd go to another state and one of the first things people ask is: "Where you from?"


"New Mexico?"

("Is there another one?")

I even went and checked. Nope, there is no other Albuquerque. Finally, I took a cue from our good friend Bill Engvall.

"Where you from?"


"New Mexico?"

"No... Albuqerque, Vermont. (Here's your sign.....)"

Then I moved to Chattanooga. (Don't bother; I checked.)

"Where you from?"



"No... Chattanooga, Wyoming. (Here's your sign.....)"
