Oh my, those are some adorable pictures! I just love how she's hanging on to her hat! And the colors in her dress are so vibrant.

Good Morning:

I just thought I would throw in another coloquial variation on your "Howdy" usage / definition.

"Hidy" works in much the same way. Actually, many Texans don't even respont to "Howdy" nearly as quickly as "Hidy". It's kind of the way someone with limited Spanish has to think for a few milliseconds if someone says "Ola" to translate that to "Hello" in English. And, not everyone in Texas wears cowboy boots and a Stetson or other cowboy hat, or even a 'gimmie' baseball (Think "John Deere" cap for that matter. It's a popular myth. We all do own big ranches with thousands of cattle and dozens of oil (Pronoundced "All") wells, though. *grin* [And, if you buy that, I have a causeway in Corpus Christi I'll sell ya cheep!]

Furthermore, a slight nod is a good idea and is right in there along with the "hat tipping" you mentioned above.

Have a gud-un now, y'all.
