Hook 'em Horns! Go horns! Go!

The Eyes Of Texas

The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
all the live-long day,
The Eyes of Texas are upon you,

you can not get away.
Do not think you can escape them,
at night or early in the morn'.
The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
'til Gabriel blows his horn.

So, here's a little story for you... This summer I got a random email from a lady in Louisana that wanted to know about stamp stores in the Austin area. I didn't know her or from where she found me. But didn't matter... she found me and asked so I thought I'd show her some of that Texas friendliness. Well, turns out that she actually went to school at the University of Texas. Huh, so did I! Wait... what? She graduated in 1991. No way. So, did I! So, she comes to Austin ends up going to Archivers because she hadn't been to one and that was closest to where she was ultimately heading. Then all the A Muse instructor stuff happened for me (just giving you some time references here). And then, this one time in band camp... oh wait, I wasn't ever in band.... ... So, then a month goes by and GUESS WHAT? She's the guest designer for A Muse... do you know who I'm talking about? Yes, yes,.... Ms. Lexi Daly. Can you freakin' believe that? If you don't know who I'm talking about, check out her unbelievable blog, Confetti... she's oh so talented... I just can't believe how "small" the world is and how many things she and I have in common... just finding it out because she asked for directions (see, Men should try it... might just find a new friend!).

Anyway, we share in the love for our alma mater and A Muse. But she's pretty much got A Muse covered. So, I can only "help" her in the Longhorn department. I sent her a little goodie package the other day along with this card.

Hook 'em Horns Lexi!

Hey, Geeta, is that a Longhorns sticker or a stamp? My 11yr old is a huge Longhorns fan and if it's a stamp I'd love to get my hands on one!

Hi-I was a teaching assistant at UT about that time (when you were a freshman or sophomore). Maybe I was your speech teacher!! Hook 'Em.
