Big Tex

Today was a sad day for the people in north Texas. Big Tex a 52 foot tall statue that has been an icon for the Texas state fair was destoyed today by fire. Big Tex made his debut in 1952. This weekend was the last weekend for the state fair, so at least Big Tex lasted until the end. I am sure Big Tex will come back bigger, stronger and more up to date next year. However, in the meantime it still does not exempt the fact that this Big Tex has been in the lives of many for the last 60 years….so today, I want to pay tribute to one of Texas most fabulous and fantastic iocns that has every graced the State Fair of Texas…so long Big Tex!
