Happy Texas Independence Day!


Happy Texas Independence Day y'all!  Being da Lone Star Cats, we's celebratin here.  Way back in 1836 (dat are even before our peeps wuz alive) Texas declared independence from Mexico.  Texas wuz it's own country for almost 10 years, wif presidents, legislatures, da whole thing.  My peeps' family wuz here in Texas when it happened, dey are 7th (or 6th in da case of Crockett's momma) generayshun Texans.   

Me and Crockett were named after defenders of the Alamo, William Barret Travis and Davy Crockett.  


We think this means we should get to celebrate today wif some good Texas BBQ, but judgin by da rainy weather, dat one ain't gonna happen.


Either Crockett are expressin his opinion on da lack of BBQ or he are echoin his namesake who said "You may all go to Hell and I will go to Texas" by givin a razzberry.

And here are some music to celebrate wif:
