"Texas" is one of my nicknames for Lexi. Lexi is the youngest of us girls.
Lex is very compassionate toward animals. She decided she was going to be a vegetarian when she was in high school, and she has been busily trying to convert the rest of us to her ways. She's always trying to get me to watch these horrible videos about how cows are killed, or the inhumane way in which chickens are penned up, and I run away. I just don't want to know. She only eats "free range" eggs, which are eggs from chickens who have been allowed to be free, instead of in a cramped pen. I don't buy them; not because I don't care, because I do, but dang, those eggs are REALLY expensive. Lex bought some moccasins last summer, but only after being reassured that the animals that the moccasins had been made from were animals in Yellowstone Park that had died of natural causes. (I wonder if that guy was telling her a story to make a sale...)
