Come to Texas! The Texas Blogathon is here
The Texas Blogathon begins today. If you haven't been paying attention, I am a Texan through and through, and I love my state. Texas is the setting for many a movie, and Texas is also a producer of many icons of the cinema. This blogathon was started to honor those movies and heroes. Keep coming back all weekend to this post, as I will be updating this thread with all the entrants who have chosen movies to cover for this blogathon. (Note to my fellow entrants: As always, be patient with me in getting your entries posted. I am a working man, so the job must take precedence...)
