I'm a big fan of any small town on the coast. We stayed in Indianola once, and I loved it there.

I’ve always like Campwood, Leaky, and Utopia. Goldthwaite is a cool small town that I really enjoy.

I love living in Menard. Don't have to take your keys out of the truck or lock the house. Good climate without all the humidity that is south and east of us. Four seasons, not just two months of winter and ten months of summer. Rolling live oaks and spring fed creeks and river. More history than any where in Texas other than San Antonio, I guess the Spaniards and Indians liked it here as well.
Adios,
Gary

Brady Tx. My favorite little town. My best friend since 6th grade his family has a big ranch there. Spent a lot of Christmas vacations and every chance I had to go there But since our falling out I haven't been back. Planned on having my ashes spread on the ranch someday but have to come up with a different idea now. But still love Brady...always will

I spent a LOT of time there in the late 90's. Dated a girl with a lot of family land around there. If memory serves, her family sort of owned that town. And last name was Jones.

Probably him. He is/was president of Arrowhead Bank. He was in Tulia when I met him back in 1976, then moved back home to Llano.

My whole family really enjoys Balmorhea, Ft. Davis, Marfa, and Alpine. We love the Davis Mtns and Big Bend.

We really like Buffalo Gap, too. I was asked to help out with the ghost story tours at BG Historic Village this year, and we LOVE going to Perini’s!

I like Port O'Connor, good fishing, good duck hunting, a couple good restaurants, and the little RV park we always stay at has the nicest people. It's fun to cruise around the town on the golf cart
