I wasn’t born in Texas and haven’t been to Louisiana. It’s not the law in Texas that keeps me away. It’s not love lost from a beautiful Texas girl.
The Army sent me to Texas to train. We camped in those plateaus and I discovered the Texas Redbug, also known as the chigger. When your body is red from the top of the feet to the chin, you get to know the little feller pretty well.
As I was sitting on this cot while tanks were firing beside me, and crying from the itch, I looked up at the beautiful blue of the Texas sky and said, “I ain’t going back to Texas.”
