Yep, we're having parades in Seymour today. Some people dressing up circa 1800s, etc. Should be a lot of fun.

Enjoy it while you can. The Mexicans are taking it back.

Yeah, they've already changed the name of an old down between Seymour and Wichita Falls named Fulda to La Escalara. This was one of the oldest cattle loading points in this area - from cattle drives to a train. Guess I should have taken Spanish in school instead of French (lol).

Once again, Texas leads the way.
