Let The Game Begin!

HOW TO PLAY:

There are 44 photos which
are to be matched with the 44 Texas town
names listed below. You will notice that
some town names will be used more
than once. The number of times the name
is listed is the number of times it will be used.

You may number your answers and list
them all on the comment form...
or...

You may copy my post to your blog
and write the name of the town under
each picture.
If you use this answer method,
write a comment to me when you
are finished.

The first person to get all the correct
answers is the WINNER!
If no one gets all the answers correct,
the winner will be based on the highest
number of correct answers.
Comment times will be used in
judging, so be sure you post a comment!

There is no winner until
Moonlight Hollow officially
announces a winner...
so don't give up!

If you not a Texan,
you should learn something
about our state!
If you are a Texan
and don't know the answers,
shame on you..
and you ought to get
out more!

Don't forget the contest at
tomorrow!
Tomorrow's contest IS NOT
Texas based!

KICK ASS!
