Oh, give me a home… where the Buffalo roam… where the Deer and the Antelope play! Where seldom is heard… a discouraging word… and the sky is not cloudy all daaaaaaay!!
Well, howdy y’all! You caught me singing again.
Oo! Oo! I found the perfect sign to hang on my front door in Ohio.
Just think of all the poor scared Texans who find themselves lost in “the North” and wonder down my street in South Toledo that I could help with that sign! What a beacon of hope to them!
Oh! And I also think I should go home with this pillow.
But my son would rather us go home with this, I think.
We found all of these fun things at the Heart of Texas Gift Gallery in downtown Nacogdoches
I tell you what I REALLY want to go home with, though. THIS.
Apparently Blue Bell now has ice cream treats! AHHHHH!
But I’d like to zero in on something even more exciting. Did you catch what that white carton says? Let’s look closer at it, shall we?
OH. MY. WORD.
And it is DE. LI. CIOUS. Tastes just like Christmas sugar cookies.
Oh!! Speaking of Christmas sugar cookies, have I ever told y’all that my Aunt makes THE best sugar cookies EVER?
And guess what?! She’s going to teach my daughter and I how to make them! Woohoooooo! (Let’s just hope it’s lazy for my sake.) (And maybe for my aunt’s sake.) (Or sanity.)
I’ve been taking the kids around to all the places I went on field trips to as a cute little Texas school-ager. We visited the Old Stone Fort the other day.
Which, incidentally, never was a fort. Who knew?! (I must have been whispering and giggling with my friend through that part of the field trip back in the day.)
It was originally called the Stone House and was built and inhabited by the Y’Barbo family sometime between 1788 and 1791. HEY! That’s old!!
It changed hands several times serving different purposes in downtown Nacogdoches and later became a saloon and was coined the Old Stone Fort.
So see? No fort.
And see? Now I’m indoctrinating you in Texas history.
Now the Old Stone Fort is a replica that has a museum inside with changing displays of early East Texas history.
And now, before you fall asleep in my Texas History class (which, by the way, my Grandmother taught Texas History) I leave you with this.
So don’t fall asleep in my Texas History class again, ya hear?!
