Quotes About Texas ~ Kinky and Others

Rummaging through some of my old content and material and found this two quotes. Have a board on Pinterest that I maintain called "ALL THINGS TEXAS". Published this post and tacked on an image just so I could pin them. :)

 "The folks in Mississippi are saying, 'Thank God for Texas.' "   -Kinky Friedman.  (Richard S. "Kinky" Friedman (1944 - ), American singer, songwriter, novelist, humorist, politician and former columnist for Texas Monthly who styles himself in the mold of popular American satirists Will Rogers and Mark Twain.)


 "I want to be a Texan 24 hours a day." -James Dean  (James Byron Dean (1931 - 1955), American film actor and cultural icon, who died at age 24 in a tragic car accident.  Best embodied by the title of his most celebrated film, "Rebel Without a Cause" (1955). NOTE:  I've heard a lot about that movie.  But I don''t remember watching it.  I remember Mr. Dean from the movie "Giant" with Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor.)


Mr. Dean is pictured on the LIFE magazine cover sandwiched between Marilyn Monroe and Bruce Lee.

Texas Revolution Began October 2, 1835 : Texas History : Closing the Border

The first shots for the Texas Revolution were fired on October 2, 1835.  The rest is Texas history.

English: Texas Flag - Come and Take It. This flag was raised by Texas settlers at the Battle of Gonzales in October 1835 after Mexico attempted to retrieve a cannon which had been granted to the town of Gonzales for protection against raids by native tribes.

Anglo-American immigrants, who had been invited to come and settle down in Texas, which had been a part of the Spanish empire, decided they wanted to break free from Mexican rulers and become their own country. 

It was not pretty. But they did it!

Entertainment for Children : "Redwall" by Brian Jacques

"Redwall" by Brian Jacques is for children (and adults who have a child's heart). 😊 

- Great as Animated Series or Book Series


Redwall was published in 1987, and it propelled the author Brian Jacques (1939 - 2011) into international stardom.

If you don't want to read the books, watch the animated series. Check YouTube. The hero is a mouse, named Matthias. Read the books or watch the series with your children or by yourself. I watched it by myself. It was fantastic!! My daughter read some of the books. She said they were fantastic! She likes to read! Fine by me. :)

Country Music: Spotlight on Angel Taylor

Love country music. The songs have real words. Real words you can relate to! My first ever published article that appeared on the Internet with my name was a memorable moment. It was about a lovely young lady who at that time was deemed to be a rising star. How far she has risen as of today? Don't know. Have not had time to keep up with her career. But here I go again singing the same song I sang about her the first time I wrote about her.




* ( NOTE:  Link to archived content.)

She's a singer/songwriter and her name is Angel Mae Taylor. Sharing a link to the the video that won me over. Every time I make mention of her as a country music singer, people want to correct me.

I don't need to be CORRECTED!

Little Ms. Taylor needs to be DIRECTED.

The girl has talent! A mentor needs to take her by the hand and lead her down the path of country music. She need somebody like that guy Clive Davis was to the late Whitney Houston.
