After writing about Texas, the Lone Star State, for two weeks now, I have received some delightful pieces of information about the state I call home. Ted and I also took a few days off and toured the beautiful Hill Country of Texas. All of the locals we spoke to in Burnet, Marble Falls, around lakes LBJ, Inks and Buchanan, in Llano, Leander, Mason County, and at Enchanted Rock assured us that the bluebonnets were the prettiest they had been in over a decade.

After writing my original article about the state I call home and dearly love, I received a good many comments from those who love her in like manner. Some shared clippings, other writings, lists of things, and their own words about the great state of Texas. I enjoyed reading every one of them and share a kindred spirit with so many who wrote. I’ve also had the opportunity of meeting some real “Texas characters,” and believe me, when I say we have our share of those, too.

The only difficult thing about visiting the popular China Garden, located in Beaumont’s Gateway Plaza, is choosing what you will eat first and how long you will stay. More than 150 items await you on the different food bars, beginning with a healthy salad area, a new hibachi grill where you see your food choices cooked, all of the Texas Gulf Coast seafood you can imagine, vegetables, specialty dishes, and tantalizing desserts.
