Heaven on Earth
THE AUGUST issue was a real keeper for
me. The story on Dairy Queens and the one on
Texas' Great Lakes both hit home. One sum-
mer in high school, I worked at a DQ in
Brownfield, and very recently my parents
moved from Possum Kingdom Lake after living
there 10 years. Thanks for the trip back home!
To us Texans in exile, TH helps remind us that
heaven really is between the Red River and
the Rio Grande.
Up ahead, the lush green woods provide a backd-op for oil boomtowns, historic railroads and TEXAS
rT the oldest towns in Texas. Off to the side, mysterious shadows of the early Caddo Indians linger. HISTORICAL
And lose behind are the stories of people: who struggled to make Texas great. So get in the car. COMMISSION
