Subject: Re: Texas town names
I'm surprised no one has mentioned one of the most famous (and my favorite)
Texas town name: Dime Box, and even better, there's Old Dime Box. Seems there
was a box people would put a letter and a dime in for anyone abouts who was
going into the nearest town that had a postoffice to carry the letter to and
mail it for them. See Fred Tarpley, East Texas Place Names if you don't
For you bilingualers, people out here in Arizona are into redundan-
cies: Picacho [big peak] Peak and Table Mesa [table].
Thus Willis Allen Ramsey's--
South of Amarillo and east of Old Dime Box
You can find you a Cinderella or a genuine Goldilocks
And if you don't like love attachments
And your taste in women is strange,
Go on spend your money my friends
Down in old La Grange!
