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.

hahaha
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.

In our India we are celebrating August 15th as the Independence day. I observed Texas also celebrating March 2nd as his Independence day when it officially broke from Mexico. Can you update this blog with all different countries' Independence dates? I am very much interested to know about it. Apart from this article, I learned about hammerhead shark which is the largest of all hammerhead species.
