    I love reading this blog. I’m not a Texan and didn’t come from a small town. What I do like is bringing stories and people from our past to the present to be appreciated and enjoyed in an entertaining and informative way. It took a few million stories to make us the nation we are today. The good, bad, and ugly. You tell those stories well. I look forward to more stories in 2011!
