You can't get the hell out of Texas

I am amused.

Hunter was born in Austin TX, about 130kms/79mi from The Alamo. He's grown up in California and New Zealand, pretty separated from his Texas birth. But. Yesterday, in "Lenah Valley AU", the snitching debit card told me he'd spent $35AU at "Grizzly Hatters". I was intrigued to see what headgear had been purchased. He trundled out of WLG international terminal today, returning from the physics competition, proudly sporting a Coonskin Cap. The very selfsame style that young Davy Crockett made famous before his untimely end at The Alamo. I guess you can take the boy out of Texas(a bloody long way out), but you can't take the Texas out of the boy, eh?
