5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Squat with yer Spurs On . . . 30 April 2000
By Kit Frazier - Published on
That saying and many others your dad used to dish up are all listed in reference form in "More Texas Sayings..." You want to know how to tell someone to get lost? Look up "Unwelcome," and find, "As welcome as... an egg suckin' dog, an outhouse breeze, and a porcupine at a nudist colony." All right, so there were a few missing, like my dad's personal favorite, regarding why undesirable people still manage to get hitched- "There's a butt for every saddle." And there's a phrase to suit every person in "More Texas Sayings..."

I happened across this little book at a used book sale.
I'm from New England and couldn't get over how similar a lot of the Texas sayings were to the old time sayings in my home state of Vermont... except of course for the ones pertaining to ranching.
It was very enjoyable and I did read quite a few new ones.

2.0 out of 5 stars Okay but nothing to write home about 28 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on
I am a born and bred Texan who also went to Texas A&M. You can't turn around without hearing some kind of saying.
I thought the book was cute but missing some vital sayings that most Texans say everyday. Like to say Hello is Howdy, y'all. Also under nervous it didn't say "As nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs".
Overall I thought the book was pretty lacking. My fiancé and I bought the book for his British relatives.
