I grew up in Coolidge, about 6 miles northwest of
, 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 in
. I think it's funny that there is a hostel there. This is a small Texas town witha population of 307. There is a post office, a park, and there used to be a store. Also Trinity Institute is where Westminster College used to be and is supposedly haunted. That's about it, but it's a great place to just hang out.
I spent five of the best years of my life in tiny
, Texas, as a student at Westminster College and Bible Institute! I remember many happy afternoons spent stretched out on a concrete picnic table on top of the hill next to a couple of Mesquite trees and a patch of prickly pear cactus. Almost forty years later I live in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee but have a poster print of a painting by Robert Woods of Tehuacana Hill hanging over my fireplace where I can see it and smile at those memories. If the old "Ad" (administration) Building is "haunted" it is filled with only happy spirits who have returned to a beloved place! I hope to return there this coming (2007) spring during bluebonnet season to photograph and reminisce!
I live about two miles from
. I've been to numerous parties there -- it's a great place to go and drink some beer.
I have lived in
since I was a little girl and it is peaceful and a beautiful little town. I had the best years of my life there -- made the best of friends there and I wouldn't change any of my childhood. It is full of trees and at spring there are bluebonnets everywhere. It is a pretty place.
is a great city. It may not be the most exciting place to visit, but hell that doesn't matter. It's one of the greatest cities in the world.
