It’s a fun read. Just make sure you have a tissue and some hair dye handy before reading it
While battle raged at the Alamo 177 years ago, a free Republic was born when delegates from across Texas met to declare their independence from a Mexican government that had “ceased to protect the lives, liberty, and property of the people, from whom its legitimate powers are derived.”
The men who declared Texas Independence knew with every fiber of their being what the price of liberty was, and that same appreciation of liberty still guides the Lone Star State today. We owe it to those who sacrificed it all to fight back whenever freedom is threatened.
I hope you have a happy Texas Independence Day, remember the brave Texians who laid it all on the line, and always stand for liberty. — Senator Ted Cruz
Texas will always stand for Freedom and will always push back against tyranny. Y’all would do well to remember that.
Lately I’ve been feeling the travel bug. I guess it’s residual from Hubby’s deployment to
the hellhole the ME. But my want of travel fluctuates between the ridiculously extravagant (Fiji), to the hellaciously remote (El Hierro), to the pedestrianly mundane (Vegas, baby!!).
There is one place I really, REALLY want to see if money were no object, though.
Seriously, who wouldn’t want to go see a bunch of half-buried statues on an island the size of Houston, situated in the middle of the world’s largest ocean?
So, if money were no object, where would y’all visit? And would you want to live there??
Thirteen years ago today, Texas A&M University suffered the greatest tragedy in its history.
In memory of the twelve who died. Their spirit lives on.
Some may boast of prowess bold
Of the school they think so grand
But there’s a spirit can ne’er be told
It’s the Spirit of Aggieland.
We are the Aggies -- the Aggies are we
True to each other as Aggies can be
We’ve got to FIGHT boys
We’ve got to fight!
We’ve got to fight for Maroon and White
After they’ve boosted all the rest
They will come and join the best
For we are the Aggies -- the Aggies are we
We’re from Texas A.M.C.
From the outside looking in, you can’t understand it. And from the inside looking out, you can’t explain it. We are family.
First, I’m older.
And now, Hostess™ closed.
Way to go, unions! That right there is called “Biting the hand that feeds you”. I swear, if Little Debbie™ folds I will go on a rampage.

Today we celebrate Veteran’s Day.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. --John 15:35
The most prominent debt we owe, is the gratitude we owe them.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE USMC!!!
God Bless them for their service, duty, and sacrifice. SEMPER FI!!!
And we will never forget.
We woke up that day. Let us remember the sacrifices, and never forget the reason. And above all, let us remain vigilant.
And no, I have no plans, either.
I do have guests for this weekend, so that will save me from drudgery.
And that also means adult conversation, so I am ahead of the game. And by game, I mean Minecraft™.
So, enjoy the weekend, and make sure to annoy a liberal today!!
