There are so many pretty parts of Texas and before we moved here, I had no idea how pretty this area would be.
Driving back through Comanche yesterday, there’s an area where there’s a ridge and it’s so pretty to look out over the pastures and see the ridge. Everything is so much greener than it was this time last year in this area. At our house, south of town, we’ve received quite a bit more rain than the lake area has received but the Comanche area has received even more rain than we have.
These cows are kinda funny looking to me. They’re right on the edge of town and those houses you see in the distance are in a subdivision and two of them are houses we tried to buy during our house hunting escapades. Even though the Comanche area is really pretty, I’m sure glad we didn’t buy there . . Vince would be driving about 30 to 35 miles one way to work and though I know some folks do that and more, Vince wouldn’t have enjoyed that at all. Right now he’s 7 miles from work and that’s farther than we’ve ever lived from his work.
Seeing those houses we had looked at and thinking about that long drive to Comanche makes me very happy we found our house.

I KNOW he would have been unhappy driving back and forth to work where I used to work – supposedly a little over 20 miles – but because of the tiny towns and hilly drive – it would take me 45 min to an hour – one way. Still and all it is a pretty drive – and I STILL go back and visit (and show off quilts and flimsies) every so often!

Beautiful for sure. But you new home is so perfect for you two. Glad you got it. Misterious ways.

I remember the first time we drove across Texas going west. Everyone said how dull and boring the scenery or lack of it was. I loved the hills and all the changing sky as we drove and still do not get bored when we drive to Amarillo from Dallas. Flat land is definitely not really flat. And one can see for miles and miles.

It is a pretty area, I use to deliver ceramics up that way to a tiny rural area. We just got back from Port Aransas, our first trip in over 20 yrs!
it was our 30th wedding anniv last Tues, we had spent our original honeymoon there and love the area. the new house colors down there are pale teal, green,blue, yellow and pink. I wish I coudl live there more of the year. But its a nice place to visit! road the ferry over and back, dolphins and seagulls abound.
