Texas Rancher Squats on His Own Spurs

Our Southeast Texas Agent recently came across a real classic. This ranch sits near the borders of Grimes and Waller Counties -- right in the heart of what was once the Stephen F. Austin Colony. It is only a few miles from Washington-on-the-Brazos, the cradle of Texas liberty. No doubt, great Texians such as Stephen F. Austin, Ben Milam, Jim Bowie and even General Sam Houston crossed the lands of what is now the ABKE Ranch.
The owners of the ABKE Ranch are no doubt proud of their Texas heritage and want to show the world that they are Texans to the core. The entry to the ranch is a large gateway that proudly displays the shape of The Lone Star State with an imposed Texas flag design (see photo). The only problem is that the ranchers painted the Texas Flag upside down. Shame, shame on the ABKE Ranch.
