A special set of photos for the Texan in all of us

I took these when I went to the Capitol one day here in Austin, Texas. I was meeting Jada so that we could go to a party "for legislators" where they served free food and alcoholic beverages. (The party was awesome, btw.)

The beautiful Texas State Capitol building. Made of Texas Pink Granite. It is almost 15 feet taller than the National Capitol in Washington, D. C. There's a funny story behind that, you should look it up on the Internet. They don't say "everything's bigger in Texas" for nothin'!

Looking up into the rotunda. Can you see the star way up there? That star is 8 feet across.

This is the Spanish seal. One of the "six flags" of Texas. It was under Spanish rule for approximately 300 years. I took this one for Jose. He is proud to say that he is here to reconquer Texas.

DAVY! DAVY CROCKETT! King of the wild frontier!

Saving the best for last! This is the portrait of our current president as governor of Texas. It hangs inside the rotunda area of the Capitol building along with the rest of the governors.

I think I'll need more people to reconquer Texas, it's too big for me. By the way, you don't have to say these kind of things in your blog because your family is aware now about my plans and they can do something against it. Huh? huh? :p

Did you take that picture of the rotunda? It looks professional.

I'll conquer Texas with my bare hands. I'll take...Port A and parts of East Texas. Make everyone leave and invite my friends and family. We'll make a flag together.

I did take that picture. See the "description" of my blog for more information.
