This is directly from Wikipedia. I found it interesting, and I hope it isn’t just because I live in Texas. There really are other Texas Cowboys than the football team:
The Texas Cowboys is an honorary men’s service organization at the University of Texas at Austin. It was founded by Arno Nowotny and Bill McGill in 1922 with the purpose of serving the University of Texas, as well as the surrounding area, with the timeless motto: “Give the best you have to Texas, and the best will come back to you.” There are more buildings named after Texas Cowboys alumni than any other student organization at UT. The Texas Cowboys also serve as ambassadors to the University of Texas and are present at all significant university-sponsored events.
The Texas Cowboys are responsible for keeping and maintaining Smokey the Cannon, which is present at all Texas Longhorns home football games. Smokey is fired off after the Eyes of Texas, at the end of every quarter, and after all Texas touchdowns, field goals, kickoffs, and two-point conversions.
Coming April 16th is The Cowboys of Clark’s Folly with some sexy cowboys and the cowgirls who ride those cowpokes hard. I have a cowboy story (yes amazing it’s not paranormal) in this anthology and so does MM. Take a look on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Cowboys-Clarks-Folly-MJ-Flournoy-ebook/dp/B06XSCV32L/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1492131356&sr=8-1&keywords=the+cowboys+of+clarks+folly
See you in Texas, pardner. Linda
