Thursday, October 12, 2017 – Get Along Little Doggies Along the Texas Cattle Drives
Listen up, Ya’ll, I’m fixin to tell ya’ll sump um.
Eat your heart out you Native Texans. Look what I won.
I like to say I won it in a Texas trivia contest, which I kinda did. But the fact that you could look up the answers somewhat negates the intellectual side of the contest. But I did win the weekly drawing and won this incredible framed print of the 1876 Texas Cattle Trails.
The Texas State Historical Association (TSHA) recently held an online Texas trivia contest. For three weeks participants answered daily questions about Texas. At the end of each week, a drawing was held and winners received some very nice prizes, including weekend get-away vacations several of the maps of Texas prints and more.
If you have been to the state capitol or visited a state office building you will find these prints hanging in various places. If you go the gift shop in the state capitol and price these framed prints, you will know how proud I am to own one. Yes, that is a hand tooled leather mat.
If you are a Native Texan or even one of those “You got Here as quickly as you could” kind of Texans, I encourage you to become a member of the TSHA. There is a whole lot more to remember and learn about Texas than just the Alamo. https://www.tshaonline.org/home/
Who knows? Maybe next you will win a cool prize about Texas.
What’s for lunch? I am feeling like a barbecued brisket. For you non Texans, we like to spell barbecue with a C, like in Cow. I reckon that’s all for now. Ya’ll be careful and ya’ll come back now ya hear?
