Happy Birthday, Texas

Mon Mar 03, 2008 2:59 am

On this date in 1836 Texas declared its independence from Mexico. Texas was an independent Republic for a number of years and some say it still is.

Happy birthday, y'all. Today we're all Texans.

Was stationed at Ft. Hood, the Arm Pit of the US, was stationed at Ft Bliss the butt crack of Texas . . .

Sorry . . .

The only thing I left in Texas was a sister and a one way ticket outta there.

Texas, well, it's cool, I guess, if you're an armadillo, or a lizard, or a rattle snake, or a snake snake . . .

Can't say I give a hoot about "Texas" either way . . . .

Texan's are cool, but well . . . .

Only reason I tolerate Texas is my paychecks come from there. Other than that, I'd wish they'd seceed-again.  Big grin

Happy belated birthday Texas. I was not born in Texas but have connections to the state and visited numerous times. Everybody I know from Texas calls me a "Converted Texan". I absolutely love the great state of Texas and plan on making Dallas my home.

Here is a few things that make Texas the greatest state in the U.S.

But I would say that April 21, 1836 is a far more important date--the battle of San Jacinto when independence was finally realized with the thumping of Santa Anna.

Whenever the San Jacinto Battleground in combination with the Battleship of Texas (still there I hope ? ) is impressive, and the success of Sam Houston against General de Santa Ana a most important moment in Texan history, I think that the Declaration of Independence by President Lamar is THE date of relevance, as it triggered what came upon that.

Congratulations, Texas!

I have been to the state many times, and there are many good things about it. I lived in MAF for a number of years as well as Dallas. I have flown through HOU, IAH, AUS, DAL and DFW. Three great airlines based in Texas and I have flown all three: WN, CO and AA.

Come and take it!

True, but that just shows that we're not tight assed about a few windshield cracks. It's flat, no doubt about that.
