I Like Cowboys...
West Berwick Street, South Side
"If you could live anywhere, where would it be?"
"Probably in Texas. I took a trip across country when I was five to California to visit my relatives out there and I remember going through all of the big long tunnels in Western Pennsylvania. We went through Joplin, Missouri, and actually, the car broke down and we had to get a new motor, so we stayed over for two or three days there. Things that stick out in my mind are going through the Mojave Desert and seeing dust devils, and lots and lots of farmland everywhere going through the midwest. Stopping at Teepee Towns that you get souvenirs and they have, like, snakes and all kinds of reptiles. Lots of wild horses were in the desert at that time; I remember them. And I remember the Pacific Ocean--it felt weird being on the left side instead of on the right with the Atlantic."
"So, after all that, you've settled on Texas…"
"Because I like cowboys, and I like rodeo, and I like horses, and I like that Southern hospitality... That's Texas."
