Texas Comments

Be prepared to have your deodorant handy! Walking around Houston in the summer is like being in a steamroom. I've never perspired so much in my entire life!
I grew up in Coolidge, about 6 miles northwest of Tehuacana, in the late 60s. There was a roadside park at the top of the hill offering a spectacular view of the begining of the Blackland Prarie extending over 20 miles. In the spring this is one of the state's most beautiful fields of Blue Bonnets that can be found anywhere. They grow so thickly that the air is scented by their blossoms. If you are a fan of our state flower, it's worth a trip back in time to when no one wore a watch because you got up with the chickens and went to bed at sundown, because there was and still is absolutely nothing else to do.
I grew up 8 miles south of Dawson in what was once the El Dorado community. We owned a 241 acre blackland farm. One can see "Tehuacana Hill" from my old farm. The bluebonnets are spectacular in the spring there!
I live about two miles from Tehuacana. I've been to numerous parties there -- it's a great place to go and drink some beer.
I live in Corsicana, about thirty-six miles north of Tehuacana. I drove down there with a camera to photograph the old college building. Even in its present state, it is quite impressive. The building seems to be in great shape considering its age. The clock tower is on the ground and is in very bad shape. Hope someone is able to restore it before the elements take an irreversible toll on it. It was worth the drive and time invested on that March day.
I lived in Fort Stockton for six years. It's not a very nice place to live, but there are some interesting things to visit. The "world's largest roadrunner" welcomes you to town. Be sure and stop by the Comanche Springs pool. (It's much nicer than the regular city pool.) Also, if you are looking for great authentic Mexican food, try a little place called Mi Casita. Bienvenidos is another good one, more on the main road, but not nearly as good as Mi Casita. There are also several nice parks in town, as well as an historic fort, and several small museums.
