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

believe me.

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!
