Happy Texas Independence Day!
On this day in 1836, settlers broke away from Mexico creating the Republic of Texas.
 I'm proud to be a Texan!
you know us Texans we are proud of our state...


I'm looking forward to a fun weekend with little britches...
it is always more fun when Oma doesn't have office work to do too...


I want to thank all of you sweet bloggers...
that leave such nice comments on my posts...
it really means the world to me...
every now and then I worry that I don't get as many
comments as other blogs or have as many followers...
but then I read your comments and realize....
quality is so much better than quanity...
your encouragment and blessings...
that is really what it is all about...


I think we all want to feel popular every now and then...
but if its empty comments...they just don't feel as good...
as the heartfelt ones...

what a lovely array of reflections! I love Texas and Texans even though I live in Hoosier Land, Indiana! My hubby and I visited there with my uncle when they were both alive.

I too am proud to be a Texan, born and bred south Texan.

I adore those turtles. They are always so sweet to see hanging out at ponds. I confess that I have never been to Texas. I need to visit!

Looks like the turtles are enjoying your lovely Texas weather -- mighty chilly here today, but sunny, so I'll take it!

Happy Texas Independence Day! (I was born in Wichita Falls, don't ya know!) Have a great weekend.

A slightly belated
Happy Texas Independence Day!

I have been all around Texas but have never had the pleasure of a visit. Maybe one of these days.

Love the reflection of that big old turtle!
