I’m not sure I’d use the word “respect” here.  More like “am amused by” or “am fascinated by” ... kind of like a visit to Ripley’s Believe it or Not
yes, "respect" is probably a bit much
but, "amused by" isn't enough in my opinion
Commend, appreciate, or applaud would fit better in my mind
although, I'm pretty sure I understand fully what you are inferring

The 8th wonder of the world = the magnetism of Austin TX
I'm a small town dirt farmer - not much into magnets
I'd probably settle up north around Leander, Round Rock, Georgetown, Taylor
Somewhere off the beaten paved freeway near a decent golf course and a good BBQ joint
just like to annoy utee, but not enough to lose a kidney over the deal

Out towards Taylor will get you off the beaten path pretty quick - may get too rednecky for you in that die-rection.
Leander has been swallowed up.  Keep going northwest.  Round Rock may be ok for you.  Georgetown is still nice but growing.
Marble Falls is nice if you have a bag of money and don't need to work.

I don't care about the "rednecky" aspect of the Austin hinterlands, cos I tend to be a cultural chameleon and get along with folks wherever I am.  But I do worry about the heat, and even up in the Hill Country it just gets too darned hot for me to want to spend summers in that part of the world. 

I could see spending winters, falls and springs there though - easily.  For me the Hill Country is the major draw of Austin.  I do like the weirdness factor and 6th Street and the good live music and the overall progressive politics.  But none of that would draw me like the Hill Country does.  What did Jerry Jeff say about dancing naked in the Hill Country rain?  I like his perspective.

The missus and I are working towards spending less & less time in the LCP part of the ATX & more & more time traveling to places in God ‘s green earth.  You know... to savor DIVERSITY in climate, scenery, cusine, music, culture, people.  The security of blandness is only a comfort for the scared & unimaginative.

I just need an inexpensive place near a decent golf course, 18 holes is a must - mustang creek just won't do

Blackhawk isn't too expensive in Pflugerville

maybe Georgetown, heck I could end up in Killeen

I don't think it snows much in Dallas

Hill Country and inexpensive are two terms that refuse to co-exist any longer.  Horseshoe Bay has a course near Marble Falls.

I went to a place in Vegas just upstairs from Wahlbangers called Redneck Riviera. Had a waitress that looked like an older version of Courtney Cox in”3000 Miles to Graceland”  - all skinny and flirty and boob brushing.   You know, brushing her boobs up against everyone and everything.

When she sashayed into the kitchen with her wriggly little butt, I said to my friends, “She looks like Courtney Cox only older,” they all thought hard and nodded.

Finally one ‘em says, “You know... Courtney Cox looks like Courtney Cox only older nowadays.”

I thought hard.

And nodded.

I hate stupid warning labels.

Last week I stayed at the Residence Inn in the museum district of Fort Worth.  My room had two or three fire sprinklers in the ceiling.  Each one had a label next to it that showed a coat hanger in a circle with a line through it.

Am I the only person in America who has never had any inclination to hang my clothes from a fire sprinkler?  Is it a common thing?  Have people been doing this for years?   

What the heck?

I never even thought about it.   I never even imagined it.

Course, once the seed was planted... I had to fight the irresistible urge all week long.

I love the one warning you not to feed the shampoo to you pet

and I was just going to do that

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Fort Worth has a museum district?
Is that the same as the Stockyards District?

Honestly, I do not know.  Once I get so far up north that I'm in the 32nd parallel, I'm a stranger in a strange and frozen land.   Fort Worth is more akin to your stomping grounds than mine.

I visited the stockyards of Fort Worth last Thursday evening......

not for the stockyards aspect, at one time Sewer City was home to the world's largest stockyards

Was at the Fort Worth Top Golf along I-35W, decided to try to find a BBQ place nearby that had beef ribs.  Cooper's at the stockyards had the Beef so wandered down there.

Enjoyed my beef rib w/o a cap on my head.

Ended up in the World's largest Honky Tonk called Billy Bob's.  Quite a place.

Still have some shiny cowgirls in those parts on Thursday evenings.  Ahhhh Whoooo!

I'm glad you found your beef ribs.  I knew that was gnawing on your brother.   

If you're ever down in H-Town, you need to go to Burn's.   

You remember the opening montage of The Flintstones when the sassy little waitress put a plate a ribs on the tray outside Fred's car window and his whole car tips over?

Yeah.  Burns is like that.

Louie Mueller in Taylor has a really good beef rib.

Stiles Switch has a very good beef rib, though sadly most of their other meats are less than stellar.  But the beef rib is worth it.

Franklin beef ribs are delicious but what a hassle to get the food.

Not as many folks do beef ribs now as used to, they're just too expensive to procure, and take up too much room on the pit so they're also expensive to produce.  Brisket is a much more cost effective meat, and pork butt even moreso.

So the missus and I were in the HEB in Leander and my wife couldn't find the pork shoulder her trendy new recipe called for so I suggested she ask the butcher.  She didn't want to but I insisted that's what they're there for.  And why they have a button.  So she pressed the button and a dude comes out.  He's an old guy, a short guy and he's dressed like the scientist/surgeons in "The Re-Animator": full length coat, gloves, skull cap, facemask around his chin, glasses with lenses that look like the bottoms of Coke bottles.  He's like, "What?.... uh... ma'am... Can I help you?"  So my wife, being naturally cute, sweet and adorable takes about three minutes to shyly and coquettishly ask him if he has any pork shoulder by laying out the complete context of why she needs it, what's she's making, where she got the recipe, everything else that's in it and who told her about the recipe people.  Dood is blinking and opening and closing his right hand this whole time like he wishes he had a meat clever.

Finally my wife finishes her delivery.  Dude looks at her, looks at me and shakes his head like we had just asked him where HEB was.  He audibly sighs and snorts simultaneous, pivots and strides.  We're rushing to keep up.

He grabs a pork butt, hands it to my wife and says, "Here."

My wife looks at it, winces, sadly shakes her head and speaks very slowly like she's trying to trying to make friends with the Elephant Man, and says, "This says 'pork butt.'  I need 'pork shoulder.'"

Butcher says, "It's the same thing."

We step backwards and simultaneously, we try to say, "uh... wait... uh..." but he's gone.  He left right in front of us as we were stammering.   The butcher had left the floor.

So we learned that.   In the arbitrary anatomy of butchers there is no difference between a butt and shoulder.

Hmm.... and by the same way of thinking, Mr. 320, I ought to be able to ask the missus if it'd be all right if I tap her shoulder.

Although to be fair, the pork butt (aka Boston butt) is really only part of the shoulder.  There's some meat below that cut closer to the (front) leg bone, that's often referred to simply as the shoulder.  

And then there's the picnic roast or picnic shoulder, which is lower down and typically includes part of the leg bone in it.

So it's actually pretty easy to be confused.

I just can't even imagine having to settle for regular store-bought BBQ.  Even the very best, isn't as good as what you can do in your own backyard.  That saddens me on your behalf, my friend.
