Thanks Stradee for the pics and stuff...... Great shots.
If Johnson were still in office (alive, of course) it would be pronounced, " Thu Merican River."
You can Google it - but, in a nut shell, when Johnson ran for office the very first time - he - at first, lost the election. Until a mysterious box full of votes for him was suddenly found in an abandoned bank in a very small town in S. Texas. He won. Geeeeee and Duhhhhhhh. No one has ever revealed how and where the mysterious box came from and how it was "lost" in an abandoned bank in a very small town in S. Texas.
That's politics in TX folks. Or, used to be. I think people down here are smartening up a bit. Or, maybe not. I don't know.
