Advice Needed

I am going on vacation to Beeville, Texas.
Can my esteemed readers (a Mrs Trellis of North Wales) advise me of anything that the astute tourist should see/partake in/shag/eat while in that part of the world?
I look forward to reading your comments on my return.

Why, pray tell, did you pick Beeville? A Brit like yourself should bring plenty of sunscreen and light weight clothing. Better yet, is there a nudist colony there, because TX in the summer is HOT and HUMID. Definitely go to Corpus Christi if you can.

I agree with Sheryl...of course, it may feel cooler if you waded in a volcano. You probably should take along some sun block.
Never, ever shag anything you intend to eat - ok, there is one exception...

You're kidding. That's practically Mexico, ferchrissake. Why?

On the other hand, it's quite close to Austin. I understand there are lots of good bands playing there. You should definitely take a tape recorder. And if you happen across a Bajo Sexto and have room in your luggage to smuggle it back, I'll be eternally grateful...

Crikey. You've gone quiet. Must already be there in Beeville.

Buzz buzz.

Totally off topic - but isn't everything here anyway! - but I have just learned that Hampshire Quislings were responsible for the Roman Invasion in 43 AD. According to a report in the Independent, people in Hampshire were "in togas and speaking Latin five decades before everyone else". See:

Perhaps you've gone to Texas to avoid the bad publicity?

The more I think about this, the more upset I get. You travel all the way to the States and can't even stop at Chicago to visit me Vicus!
I hope you get a nasty case of sunburn and the trots from some old fashion 5 alarm Texas chili!

Sheryl. There was a nudist colony here until I showed up.
Broomhilda - what does Chicago have that I can't get in abundance in Beeville?
Mark - do not fret, I will be back.
Simon. I feel obliged to thank you despite tbe bitter undertones in your comment. As someone from a land where fat-arsed hooligans dress in skirts to frighten visitors, it ill behoves you to denigrate the Latinos. Quislings - I denounce that idea thoroughly, we were European in outlook 12 centuries before the first Scot recovered from a hangover.

Yes, but WHY?

I imagine rivers of Southern honey, produced at great loss of life by the selfless drones of Beeville. But are you sure that's the only place you're going? Surely N'warlins beckons? Or Port Arthur, birthplace of the sacred Janis?

Aw. I'm jist jealous, dude. Ten-four.
