Texas, USA

A new addition to my US map card collection and it comes as an official :)

Here are the usual facts from the back of the card that come along with every US map card of the states.

State Bird: Mockingbird
State Flower: Bluebonnet
State Tree: Pecan
Capital: Austin
Motto: Friendship
Statehood: Dec. 29, 1845 (28th State admitted)

Well, not many facts given...hope you wont mind if i just ramble a bit

You know what happened to me this morning....i woke up out of nowhere, all in panic that i have overslept...then i took a look at the time and saw that it was around 6:30am...meaning i was ok...and then after a few seconds i said to myself..hey, why the hell do you panic, it Saturday today, and i went back to sleep, trying to make the schedule for the day and all...and as i was doing that i was also wondering how could it be Saturday, since I couldnt recall things i have been doing the week before...so for quite some time i was lying in bed, negotiating with myself, which day the hell is it today...somehow i was convinced it was Saturday, but then on the other hand, there was a small voice inside of me telling me that if i keep thinking like that i will REALLY oversleep and be late and all...and yeah, can you imagine how shocking it was to find out that its actually Tuesday =|

there are 3 nice stamps on the card. The one on the left is the 3-cent "make up rate" stamp which was first issued in June 2002 and features a star highlighted in red, white and blue. The middle stamp is a self-adhesive stamp issued in a set of 10 stamps in 2008 representing Tropicl Fruits, and you see here the Papaya. The stamp on the right is another one from 2009, a definitive stamp which features a bottlenose dolphin leaping from the water.
