Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I've lived here almost half a century and am only now really finding out the treasures it holds, especially West Texas. I'd like to take the Texas Last Frontier Ranch Heritage Tour to see the land early cattlemen saw, and saw promise in, despite the hardships. As I read their stories, even the landforms mentioned hold new meaning after learning some of what happened there.

London, Texas is a very small town. It is known for the London Dance Hall, with live music and country dancing on weekends. My in-laws are buried in London, and my own space is reserved nearby.

Here's something you may not know. I once lived in Mobeetie, Tx. The story goes that they wanted to name the town "Sweetwater" but the name was already used so they asked an Indian their translation of Sweetwater. Mobeetie was the name. But he was sneaky. Really means "Buffalo Chip"
There is an Old Mobeetie and a New Mobeetie. This occurred because people moved to where they thought would be a new railroad, which didn't happen. And because a major tornado leveled Old Mobeetie.

Forget Beaumont....Texarkana is closer to Chicago than it is to El Paso.
Dalhart is located in the panhandle NW of Amarillo. It is closer to 6 other state capitols than it is to Austin (Oklahoma City, Santa Fe, Denver, Cheyenne, Topeka, and Lincoln).
