Adios, Big Tex!

On October 19, 2012, the symbol of the State Fair of Texas was destroyed by fire. Those of us who grew up in Dallas and surrounding areas couldn't believe that after 60 years, this icon was gone! 

To read my tribute to Big Tex, check out today's post on the Boomers & Books Blog: Adios, Big Tex.
