Flag of United States  , Texas
Wednesday, August 24, 2005

Subtly is not Texas' forte. There's not a word to describe it fully so I am forced to make one up: Monstrunanimous.
Things are bigger here. Pepperell'd be wiping the boots of these giant towns. And geniously, Jenny and I have decided to travel strait though the fattest part.. we enter Texas to learn el Paso is 900 miles west. Drive back and forth MA 18 times and you'll understand. Any horseback-riding cowboys deserve the hoopla if they ventured half that.
I already feel unworthy on so many levels. Clearly my path to heaven is shaky because i do not reside in texas. Although my pen says 'I love Jesus' so perhaps that'll give me an edge.

While driving I liked to play "If i were born in Texas..." I'm convinced if I were I'd be a rowdy bartender who'd dance on tables wearing tight jeans and big boots. I'd marry some local and 12 kids later would retire to my ranch to watch sunsets and sip whiskey. (sigh)

rambling rambling.. but helllooooo bachelor pad! Jenny and I are staying in the PALACE of pads, texas stylee. I feel like a princess. Soon we're off to see happenings of this city.

A fun place thus far, San Antonio has yet to let me down.



OH a few songs of the days ... (I've been lagging)
Guns N Roses Sweet Child of Mine
Simon and Garfunkel America
The Band The Weight
Bruce Thunder Road

and a fun discovery : Paul Simon I know what I know

Here's a trivia question for you cowgirls:
During your journeys through Arizona you may pass through an Indian reservation called Gila River Indian Reservation home of a WWII Indian legend named Ira Hayes. Living in severe poverty Ira decided to enlist so he could send money back home to his family in Sacaton, AZ. During his battles in the Pacific a picture was taken of Ira and 5 other men doing ? that became symbolic to victory in every war thereafter. This picture has been seen by everyone in the country especially after 9/11, and even became a national monument. Songs were written about this man one in particular "The Ballad of Ira Hayes" By Peter LaFarge also sung by Johnny Cash. What were they doing in that picture?
