  1. Danny Shipman says:

    We were blessed by gental spring rains but
    nothing could stop the great times
    The smiles on children’s faces were beautiful as spring flowers.

  2. Anthony Neighbors says:

    Proud to share my birthday with the great state of Texas my home
    and my hero Sam Houston

  3. Fred Goodwin says:

    I will always celebrate March 2 as Texas Independence Day.

    It is sad that other occasions like Cinco de Mayo and Diez y Seis get more media coverage, but what really galls me is that local governments in Austin and San Antonio spend tax dollars on those celebrations while ignoring March 2.

    If you don’t believe me, just take at your local paper on those three days and you tell me which gets more coverage and more tax dollars.

Speak Your Mind
