    This should about cover it.

    aggravated
    used to describe everything from mild annoyance to dangerous, murderous rage. Usually pronounced "agger-vated."
    all swole up
    an alternative to aggravated, but sometimes carries connotations of being obstinate, proud and self-abosorbed, in addition to being aggravated.
    all choked up
    upset, overcome with emotions (other than aggravation). A person is usually "all choked up" when they are deeply moved by sadness or by the thoughtfulness of others.
    all worked up
    in a state of aggravation, arousal of some type, in a state of deeply offended pride, offended sensibilities, in a state of anxiety, etc. Agitated.
    Arbuckle
    a synonym for coffee, when the Arbuckle brand was virtually the only one available.
    ball
    usually means football.
    blinky
    adjective used to describe milk that has begun to sour.
    blue norther
    storm that comes up as a giant, blue-black cloud of cold air comes over the warm gulf air and "just about freezes us to death!" Rain and wind may accompany the black cloud.
    catty whompus
    used to describe something that doesn't fit properly or is out of line.
    clabber milk
    butter milk
    come hell or high water
    shows determination to proceed, regardless of the problems, obstacles, etc.
    conniptions
    to have conniptions is to get upset and raise a ruckus.
    crusty
    tough and/or bad tempered man, woman or horse.
    dad blame it, dad gum it, dag nab it
    euphamisms coined to allow expressive speech without swearing.
    dinner
    depending on the Dillo, this can be the noontime meal or the evening meal.
    eat up
    eaten up, destroyed, oxidized.
    fess up
    admit.
    fit to be tied
    really upset.
    fixins
    food; the rest of the meal, excluding the main dish.
    fixin' ta
    getting ready to do something.
    frog-strangler
    an extraordinary amount of rain.
    galoot
    an old cowboy term meaning "old rascal." It's generally meant affably.
    go ahead on
    "You go ahead, I'll catch up later."
    go to the house
    go in for dinner/supper, depending on the Dillo.
    gully-washer
    an extraordinary amount of rain.
    hissy fit
    This term was never actually defined, but I get the impression it's a state of extreme agitation and not a pretty thing to see.
    howdy
    How do you do?
    i'll swan
    used instead of "I swear."
    larrupin'
    a few fingers tastier than finger-lickin' good.
    lit out
    took off, started out, or absconded across some terrain.
    looker
    a pretty girl.
    maverick
    a loner, an independent cuss, wild. First used to describe cattle owned by Sam Maverick of Galveston Island. His cattle were "wild-like" and he'd swim them across West Bay and join up with the herd going north. When cattle broke the herd, the wranglers said, "That's one of Maverick's."
    norther
    a storm; not as bad as a blue norther.
    nu-uh
    no.
    ole cuss
    and old rascal (or galoot) who is tough and/or bad-tempered.
    over yonder
    a directional phrase meaning "over there."
    over in through there, also: you go up in through there.
    Directional phrase; one I'm told foreigners (read: anybody except a Texan) have trouble understanding.
    place
    an individual's farm or ranch.
    plug
    common mutt horse.
    plug-ugly
    see above. This is definitely not a compliment, and should not be treated as such.
    pole-axed
    knocked down, smashed flat, with dramatic force.
    post oak
    wood that is hard and resistant to rot and can be used for fenceposts.
    ridin' high
    doin' aw'right; probably a reference to the quality of horse you are riding. If you're poor, you ride a burro (short) or a plug. If you're wealthy, you might ride a thoroughbred or Tennessee Walker; therefore, you're ridin' high.
    shoot
    an expletive (should be used with an exclamation point).
    slaunchways
    a piece of wood that is cut on an angle is cut slaunchways.
    sorry
    a particularly important Texas adjective meaning worthless, no-count, useless, bad. Enhanced inflection makes it more emphatic.
    squaddies (or is that quaddies?)
    cowboys. This was a very common term in the 19th century.
    supper
    Once again, depending on the Dillo, this can be either the noon or the evening meal.

    milk that tastes good.
    t*rd-floater
    a very heavy downpour.
    taken to
    began, adapted, started liking. Use #l: He's taken to drinking." Use #2: She's taken to that new job of hers right off."
    tank
    pond
    the friendly creature
    19th century term for whiskey.
    truck
    food
    tump
    to spill or dump
    walkin' in tall cotton
    doin' aw'right (see ridin' high)
    waller
    as far as I can tell, this is an extremely useful, if somewhat vague verb of many uses. It's usually used as a past participle. "The wheel was wallered out." or "The Dillo List wallered down an gave that little nawthun lady a bunch of Texas Tawk."
    whole nuther thing
    soemthing else entirely
    whomperjawed
    when something is not fitting properly, e.g., "You'll never get that wine open, the corscrew is all whomperjawed!"
    wore out
    fatigued, exhausted; also sometimes used for "worn out" machinery, etc.
    yankee/damnyankee
    type of human who is at the bottom of many Texas methaphysical, moral and cultural paradigms. Damnyankee is thought to be objectively descriptive rather than profane, and it is comfortably accomodated in some social environments where "bad language" is otherwise controlled by inherent coercive prohibitions. (Note: Although it is often said that damnyankees do a pretty good job of compiling Texasisms.)
