51, at first I thought you went and grew a goatee. Then I was like, oh looks like he's gained weight since the last time he posted a pic. Then I noticed your gut looked awfully pillow like and you were holding cleaning supplies. Then I got the joke.
I feel, in Texas, I see more Hispanics in cowboys hats than white folk haha.
That's because there are more hispanic than white in many areas, esp. the Rio Grande Valley where MetSox is from. It's a growing demographic! I'm in Utah now, and it's weird because I actually miss all the Tex-Mex culture. :(
Actually, to be specific, I teach Spanish history,which is where the original vaqueros under the hacienda system came from, so it is relevant to European history, and Islamic history as well.
Take that John Wayne.
Relevant? I believe you mean it happened prior to the start and peak of the cattle industry in Texas, thus having little to do with ranching in Texas besides occurring a long time ago, and being part of a larger arch of history.
