fill in the blanks!

I believe this phrase is commonly used by people who are Notary Publics, but for the life of me, I can not figure out what exactly goes in the blanks - of course with the exception of the date. Given under _______ hand ____ and seal ______ this _____ day of _______.

Debbie, this site describes all of the applicable laws and forms for notaries in the state of Texas: http://www.sos.state.tx.us/statdoc/edinfo.shtml

The "Form for Ordinary Certificate of Acknowledgment," the standard form for most ordinary purposes, is reproduced below. The blanks here correspond to:

1) Texas county under which the notary is registered,
2) The person requesting the notary's services
3) A witness,
4) An ordinal number (first, second, third, etc.) denoting the day of the month, and
5) The year as a four-digit number (2004, 2005, etc.).

The notary's official seal appears below the notary's signature as indicated.
