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!
