Been gone from my hometown of Lubbock for 25 years now. Today I had to call and speak to some people there regarding the value of a farm in Lubbock county my mother sold. In the course of attempting to track down some information, I had to speak to several different people. I was just so impressed that all of them were so incredibly friendly and helpful!

I have heard before that people liked the friendly people there, but I never thought much about it till today.

I miss Lubbock!

I've been gone from Lubbock for nine years, and I too miss the friendly people of Lubbock. Several things that stand out in my mind that I miss about Lubbock:

- Driving outside of Lubbock on a sunny day and being able to see in every direction around me for miles and miles

- Sitting outside with a cold drink and good friends on those cool summer nights with no humidity and a light breeze

- The sky. It seems so much larger in Lubbock. On most summer days especially, the cloud formations in the sky looked like a work of art to me.

- Taking out-of-town friends for a steak dinner at Cagle's. Right outside of town in what looked like a Spanish fortress surrounded by ranch land.

- Kind people who would go way out of their way to help others.

I love the amenities and culture here in Dallas, but Lubbock will always be a big part of me.

Miss that low humidity too, and Lubbock sunsets were amazing.
Cagles? This must have been after we left. Wonder if this is what was originally La Fonda Del Sol and later The Roadhouse?

I'm not familiar with La Fonda Del Sol, but I think the Roadhouse was north of the city and west of the Lubbock Country Club. I remember going there when I was a kid. Cagle's is a couple of miles west of the city off whatever the highway is called that becomes 4th Street when you get into the city.

I'm wondering what kinds of things I will miss about Lubbock when I move next year. I know I will definitely miss the skies, especially at sunrise and sunset. And the low humidity. One Guy's and Spanky's as well...

Yeah, the Roadhouse was northwest of the city. I ate there with my mother the last night I was in Lubbock. Dallas had a lot of restaurants, but I knew it didn't have The Roadhouse! Lubbock has changed so much it seems. Love to take a trip out there.

I have yet to find a calzone in Dallas as good as One Guy's.

(kaykay smiles wistfully)...I would like to move back, actually, but too deep of roots here now if you know what I mean.
