Glad To Be In Gail or No Boredom in Borden

After a great evening in Post, I had an early morning drive on Scenic 669.  I often tell people that these drives are somewhat spiritual...enough so to stop the car, get out, and just take in the God-made beauty that surrounds you.  Many people jokingly talk of the nothingness in our region, but it is that exact description that I believe is our largest tourist draw.  A place where you can see and breathe nature without the clamor of the city.  It is these roads that bikers and peace-seekers yearn to find.   That said, arriving in Gail, put a smile on my face.  It's as if the world disappears in Borden County...a much simpler and easier way of life.  A place where everyone knows when 'breaktime' is in the courthouse.   A place where they give "strangers" the keys to the museum.   A place community pride and tradition is more-than apparent in their Borden County School--a top-notch facility that exudes warmth and closeness of faculty and students.   (Even made me miss teaching for a minute.)  No doubt, these students are given an education that will prepare them for any avenue they choose to pursue.  A place where all the locals meet at the Coyote Cafe to discuss day-to-day events and solve the problems of the world....which seem very distant from Gail.  A special place, indeed!  Deborah Sue  Find out more about Borden County hereGail here, and the Borden County ISD here.

Tales from the Plains Trail Region

Striving to inspire others to travel the rugged-beauty of the Texas Plains Trail Region where the grass is greener, the people are friendlier, and the sky is blue. Wow! A great place to live is a great place to visit. C'mon visit the "Texas You Will Remember."
