It is March 2, 2006—Happy Texas independence Day!
170 years ago today, Texas gained its independence
I had a conversation yesterday regarding the Texas attitude. I guess those who are don’t live in Texas don’t understand what it is like to be from Texas. We are the greatest state in the union. How Texas became Texas is quite an interesting read. I mean come on–do you really think it would be interesting to study the birth of Ohio? I think not–even though I am from Ohio–moved to Texas when I was five–I am a Texan. So as you go about your work day (this should be a state holiday) take a moment to remember Texas. Put in a Willie CD, have a bowl of chili, a cold Shiner, and a slice of pecan pie and remember how lucky you are to be in Texas!
