Texas Independence Day

March 2nd is Texas Independence Day. Many states celebrate their date of admission to the Union as a state holiday, but not Mother Texas. Here in the Lone Star State, we throw down for the day we told Mexico to go screw. Never mind the fact that Texas only lasted as an independent country for nine measly years. Of course, that could all change if these guys ever get their way.

So long as I get a day off, I'll be glad to observe Texas Independence Day by having some enchiladas at the Dart Bowl Cafe.

Message from Mexico: Texas will be ours again, someday. Oh, yes. It will be ours.

Say, Martin Parmer, signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, whose son Isam sold General Sam Houston the fine gray horse that was later shot and killed out from under him at the battle of San Jacinto, wouldn't happen to be your great great great grandfather would he?

Terri, please put in a good word for me with Mexico so I can keep my duplex.

Andrea, if we're talking about the early Nineties (might as well be a trillion years ago), the Lake Austin Magnolia, and KTSB 91.7 Cable FM, I think you may well have. Good to hear from ya.

Anonymous Parmer Fan, shouldn't you be designing something?

Ah yes, I thought so. That was indeed the place and the time. So, you're working for the big bad government, which tentacle? I work at the PCL on UT campus and have for the last 5 or so years.

Cheers,
