Is it possibly a low growing bush rather than a vine? Leaves resemble rhus trilobata (skunkbush sumac) and looks like var. pilosissima is native to west TX.

Here is a link that might be useful: Rhus trilobata

Thanks - looks like it to me.

Problem - the leaves are somewhat smooth, rather than fuzzy and it is a vine.

Berries are single too.

vine has tendrils holding it to fence - thick shiny leaves

'Autumn Amber' was the creeping cultivar I was thinking of. Leaf fuzziness varies a lot by variety and across the season, but it's certainly not r. trilobata if it has tendrils and single berries.

So, until someone who knows chimes in.... could it be some kind of sorrelvine (cissus trifoliata)? It has the tendrils, but berries may not match your description.

I agree with Cissus trifoliata or something closely related. Leaves are thick and succulent.

Cissus trifoliate. You either love it or hate it. DO NOT try to dig it out. Every where you injure a root a new plant will grow. others will come out from other roots. I don't mind it, I just don't want it all over my front beds.

I like it. It has pretty leaves and quietly roams around in the shady parts in the back of the yard, but doesn't try to take over. I've even transplanted it to places where I wanted a mannerly vine on the back fence. It's a larva host plant for a beautiful moth as well.

It looks like ivy to me at least it looks like the variety I have growing in my shaded areas of my yard.
