Please allow me to give you example #539 of how awesome / amazing / incredible the community that has formed through this site and our Facebook page is.
I recently posted about our son’s first trip to the State Fair Of Texas and today, after coming home from what was shaping up to be a pretty lousy day, I find this incredibly epic video posted by one of our readers/friends smack dab on our Facebook page.
How crazy is it that: a) this friend not only read my post about being such a fan of the Texas State Fair, but b) SHE LIVES NEXT DOOR TO BIG TEX HIMSELF…!!!
Wow! This. Is. Epic. Meeting (well, sort of meeting) Big Tex is like a million times more epic than meeting Dog The Bounty Hunter or someone super famous like that. I’m sort of star-struck.
If you aren’t from around here you probably have no idea who Big Tex is, or why this video is so amazing, but Big Tex is basically a State Fair of Texas icon. I mean after all we almost named our son after him. Wouldn’t you agree that having a son named “Big Tex” would be very….well…um…Texan…!? :)
And yes I said Icon. With a capital I.
And there he is. The voice of the Sate Fair of Texas giving our son a shout out. This is a very proud day indeed.
A huge thank you to Amber, and of course, Big Tex. I’m honored, and humbled. We owe you both a fried Twinkie.
What do you guys thank about Big Tex? Wouldn’t you agree that he’s even cooler in real life?
