13 Days to Glory!

alamo-bigWell, color (or is it colour?) me embarrassed, it shouldn’t take a British History professor to remind me that today is the 179th anniversary of the fall of the Alamo.

But I spaced it off, so here you go. I do recommend that you let John Wayne help you remember those brave men.

  1. Indeed a most Cool Movie! Btw, a true story, but I met Ethan Wayne, John Wayne’s youngest son, (now early 50’s?) at the Fullerton Airport in the So Cal. He was going to fly in some two engine aircraft he owned I believe? but did not fly himself, but had a pilot as I remember. Fullerton is a smaller Airport.

  2. Americans and Texans are very proud of the event and the heroes. But I’ve always wondered why is there pride in stealing part of a neighboring country? And why is Santa Anna the villain?

      Fairly simple, Carl. They settled peaceably under the terms of the Constitution of 1824. Santa Ana abrogated that Constitution and turned into a tyrant, and as always they gave their lives to setting it right.

    Well, we’ll see what happens in the future…
    A Texan went into a bar and ordered a round for everybody.
    He was cheered.
    Barkeep asked …What’s the occasion?
    Texan said …Son born today.
    Keep said and asked…That’s great, how big is he?
    Texan said…23 pounds.
    Keep…Wow!
    Few days later Texan came back in bar.
    Keep recognized the Texan and asked how the son was doing.
    Fine said the Texan, he weighs 16 pounds.
    Keep…What happened, he born at 23 pounds?
    Texan…We had him circumcised.
