Very impressive--Texas must be something, we only have names like Quingahagak and Egegik.

Got to your blog through A Day in Our Life... I love this posting, because although I don't live there now, I grew up in Plano, TX. My three brothers and I had shirts that said..."Where in the world is Plano, Texas?" I've lived in every major town in Texas. I didn't realize all those towns existed!
