Texas Independence Day

Oh yes, my Lone Star's March 2nd and it's Texas Independence Day!!!! One hundred and seventy-six years ago today, Texas drafted, voted on and approved the Declaration of Independence to be a free Republic from Mexico. This day is also known as the Terquasquicentennial plus one year. Yeah, I know, that's a hard word to say. So much so, I almost had to visit the dentist to untangle my tongue after my first attempt. 

No matter what you do today, take time to remember the boys at the Alamo, Goliad and Buffalo Bayou, because without the sacrifices of those men, we wouldn't have the wonderful state we have today.

So enjoy your day ya'll and God bless Texas!!!!
