Thank you Neddy, I will check it out. Hows it going? Do you still like Texas? I am sure the question is yes. I have not heard one person yet say they don't like it.

Oh man, is my house ever going to sell. I want to go so bad.

ITs going well, yup still love Texas and I am surethat will never change since I was born here! I was thinking just the other day as I got a hogzilla picture of a feral hog shot out at our ranch about ya! About 375 lbs of pig and the guy figures there are at least 13 others that size and pigs are worse than rabbits!(babies) Don't want one of those things to change at me or my boys so I am thinking about getting a dog.
Are you still looking in the area?

Well, I have 8 dogs and I don't know if they would stop a 375 lb pig. Are those good for eatin'? Yuck.

I really like East Texas a lot. So that is where we are looking. Winnona sounds nice to me but I will have to check it out more.

Well, let me know if your new dog likes hogs. I do think you might have to get three though. The hog might think twice if there were more dogs.

Take care.

I looked up Winnona and its south of FT Worth. Is that the one you are talking about? Have a lot of relatives in East Texas so I have spent my fair share of time up that way also and my money would be on Lake O the Pines. Lots of people from Dallas retiring over there. great area for fishing and the likes..

Good luck

I spelled that wrong. It's Winona just south of Tyler. Near Gilmer. I don't know much about it yet but it sure is grrrreeeennnn there. If you know of it, I would appreciate you telling what you know.

Thanks

I guess I will have to pass on Winona East Texas. I really know how to pick them don't I. This is what I found.

toxic waste dump opened in 1982 upwind of the small East Texas town of Winona, ... when a Winona-based environmental group asked her to take pictures of ...

Oh well, I tried.

Go look at Jefferson and the Lako O the Pines or maybe even Caddo Lake. Sorry about it being former toxic dump. IF you are interested in the Caddo area I have a sort of relative thats a realtor over that way.

I worked for the [now named] Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for many years. I don't know how many times someone bought a 'wonderful' piece of land after a short visit, only to later be building a home when they discovered a chicken farm or a rendering plant near by. Of course, on their first visit, the wind had been blowing the OTHER way.

Techinically, the plants can't cause excessive odors, but there is a certain amount that is considered normal and natural for a given area (especially for feedlots - look out around Stephenville!) and even excessive odors have to be fought for a long time before they may be corrected.

Probably not the best example, since the rendering plants come under pretty close scrutiny lately, but the moral is CHECK OUT what is around the area you are looking at. There are quite a few rendering and chicken farms around east Texas...
