    Well then- I’m not going to the zoo or North Queensland. Birds that like to disembowel people are not exactly on my sightseeing list.

    Mate a buck Kangaroo can drop your guts on the ground if he gets those claws on his legs into you.
    It's like any wild critter........... stir them up and you'll get all the grief your looking for.

    On a little bit more local level, her old house is about a half mile from mine.

    For them as like "hillbilly rock", Wyoming had Chris LeDoux.

    Definitely not my cup of tea, but my son thought he was God's gift to music.

    Florida is really three states. West of the Apalachicola river is more like Alabama, From the river to Ocala is more like Georgia. South of Ocala is another world entirely, more akin to New York than the Deep South. The Keys, of Jimmy Buffet fame, may even be a forth state that is not as easy to define as the other three.

    All great responses. A little disappointed- we are still missing a bunch of states- and TAC, still waiting on you....

    PS- for those with Scot ancestry- had the pleasure of hearing the Black Watch play in Richmond VA. If anybody wanted to hear the Rebel Yell- well, they played Dixie- and the crowd responded.

    I've had the pleasure of attending several performances by the Black Watch (The Gallant forty Twa:))
    Definitely worthwhile.

    I have wanted to contribute to this thread, but I am having a hard time finding a theme song for the State of Despair. Can anyone help?

    For Ohio it would have to be Faust & Lewis' "Save The Beer!"

    I went to school, my first four years, in the late 1950s, in a tiny town about 50 miles from where I live now. Football games were opened with a rousing rendition of Dixie. There would be no mercy for anyone who didn't stand at attention, remove his hat and remain reverent until it was over. The Civil War had not ended in Altha, Fl. I am not sure it has ended there in the 60 years since either. ;)

    I currently live 150 miles away from my “hometown”. I grew up in a REALLY small town, had a great time growing up there and that is where my twin brother is buried and the last place we lived in the same house at. Not to get to mushy, don’t really know why I’m sharing this but when I make a trip up there to see my friends this is the song I play over and over
