I've been away a bit and mostly a lurker anyhoo so I just came upon this thread.
I see Sir Kevin's song is mentioned as scanning to Yellow Rose of Texas but I just wanted to declare it also works with "Ballad of the Alamo" (as sung by Marty Robbins and part of the John Wayne movie The Alamo) - - - and it also seems to work with "Ghost Riders In The Sky"
Anyway ma'am, from a fellow Texan, glad you're doing better and sounds like you will be getting about while the bluebonnets are still a-bloomin'
At least they're still thick in parts of the I-10 corridor between Houston and San Antone but I couldn't make it to the hill country myself this spring.
All the best to ya and a tip of the 10-oz ballcap, michael
