Annie Get your Dictionary

For CH, PP, and a few others: this is for you.

Maverick: The original maverick is, actually, Samuel Maverick, born in 1803, a slave-owning Texas Democrat who put the name into popular usage because he refused to brand his cattle -- thus wayward animals wandering the range aimlessly with no sign of where they belonged were called, in his honor, Maverick cattle.

Yippee kiyay.

That's all folks!


  1. Thanks for the update from California. Yep, they're desperate. From negative to lies to downright nasty slanderous lies. Pathetic. xo

  2. Love this! Very interesting!

  3. Humph. I always thought Tom Cruise was the original. ;)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
