Tex Muldoon To The Rescue...A WeeBit of Texas Blarney!

Barty was trapped in a bog East Texas Swamp and seemed a goner when Big Mick O'Reilly wandered by.

"Help!" Barty shouted, "Oi'm sinkin'!"
Don't worry," assured Mick. "Next to Tex Muldoon, Oi'm the strongest man in Erin, Texas and Oi'll pull ye right out o' there."
Mick leaned out and grabbed Barty's hand and pulled and pulled to no avail.
After two more unsuccessful attempts, Mick said to Barty, "Shure, an' Oi can't do it. Tex Muldoon could do it alone, mebbe, but Oi'll have to get some help."
As Mick was leaving, Barty called "Mick! Mick!

D'ye think it will help if Oi pull me feet out of the stirrups?
Pat and Jimmy-Joe met and one said to the other,
"Have ye seen Tex Muldoon lately,Pat?"
Pat said, "Well, I have and I haven't."
His friend asked, "Shure, and what d'ye mean by that?"
Pat said, "It's like this, y'see...I saw a chap who I thought was Tex Muldoon, and he saw a chap that he thought was me. And when we got up to one another...it was neither of us."

D'ye think me 'BlogginFriends' that Irish Texans are 'Sittin Tall' in the Saddle on Saint Patricks Day?

Hills as green as emeralds
Cover the countryside
Lakes as blue as sapphires-
And Texas' special pride
And rivers that shine like silver
Make Texas look so fair-
But the friendliness of her people
Is the richest treasure there.

Happy Saint Patricks Day!


  1. Good Morning Sue Sweetie...
    I love this post. So cute and you wrote it so well. Love that Irish Texas drawl. Just so stinkin cute. I love it.

    Would it help if he took his feet out of the stirrups? Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Oh I love it. Thank you for sharing with me this morning.

    The Texans were their Irish proudly. Love the shamrock shirt, it really is cute, but I adore that cowgirl hat. You just can't take the country out of the girl. It is forever etched in my heart and soul.

    Country hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

  2. Hey Stranger...sorry I have been MIA for a while, but I have been traveling a lot with work and had to put blogging on hold. I am still looking for the dress you told me about, but no luck yet. I will keep searching! I hope all is well and I will be better about visiting your blog (one of my favorites). Have a great week.
