Talk to TH: July 2013
“We really enjoy receiving Texas Highways every month. There are so many beautiful places here in Texas!”
—HILDA MELENDEZ GOMEZ, TH Facebook Fan
I almost fell over when I opened my mailbox and saw the most beautiful Boston terrier ever on the May cover. Almost the exact image of my late terrier, Sir Leo Winston. It brought tears to my eyes.
I always enjoy the many places you show and write about and have been to most all of them. You can point your camera any which way in Texas and always get a beautiful shot of God’s Country. Keep up the beautiful issues.

A big thank you for publishing the photo of the State Fair mural located in uptown Dallas, in May’s TH Taste. The talented artist happens to be my son, Michael Longhofer. His website is www.longhofer.name.
Landing in San Angelo
Regarding Anthony Head’s story on airport dining [TH Taste, June]: The list of great airport cafés is not complete until you add Mathis Field Cafe in San Angelo (325/942-1172). All of their food is good, but their specialty is Chinese. Wonderful! We often have to stand in line to get a seat. When on commuter flights from Dallas to San Angelo, we often hear the crew talk about how they can’t wait to get to San Angelo so they can eat at Mathis Field Cafe.
TH Facebook fans’ summer plans:
Fort Davis and Davis Mountains State Park, with a side of the McDonald Observatory! Also, a stop in Marfa and dinner at the Late Night Grilled Cheese Parlour.
