Happy Birthday Texas!

2 Mar

Today is the 175th Anniversary of the signing of The Texas Declaration of Independence.  At this time in history we were still constantly getting into it with Santa Anna.  We were not a part of the Union and we wouldn’t be for almost another decade.  We were our own country, our own Republic.  At the time The Republic of Texas was it’s own island surrounded by an overbearing union of states, a violent dictator and thousands of miles of un-civilized, savage land.

 

I’m really glad this is my native land.  I appreciate it for it’s nature and diverse terrain and it’s people.  My dad moved here from London England in the late 60’s and he never wanted to leave.  I’m glad he didn’t.

 

So Happy Birthday Texas!
