October CoverBoo-ing October?

As a big fan and devoted reader of TH, I think October’s “Boo!” issue was over the top.

I know that all things zombies are currently in style, but the “Zombies in Paris” article was tasteless. The pictures were especially grotesque. It did nothing for this reader to en-hance the issue and to portray a haunted Texas.


Just got a preview of “Zombies” and it looks great! Thank you for coming to Paris and helping with tourism. Even for the undead, TH has been a part of my life since childhood.

Island Intrigue

I, like Melissa Gaskill, had little idea just how haunted Galveston could be [October]. I will take my family this fall to enjoy the tales and haunts the wonderful island has to offer.  A native Texan, I love finding out all the new places to go and see in TH.


Top Texans

I really enjoyed seeing Joe and Lanna Duncan and Tom Perini being honored as Extraordinary Texans in September. I have met all three and they are true Texans.

My wife and I have been going to the “golden triangle” of Marfa/Alpine/Fort Davis from Dallas for over 20 years and many of those trips involved eating at Perini Ranch Steakhouse. We’ve stayed at all the Duncan inns, including El Capitan in Van Horn. The Paisano in Marfa is our favorite.

Autumn in Oak Cliff

Another beautiful Texas spot lies in Oak Cliff, in Southwest Dallas. My husband and I take long walks down West Five Mile Parkway. It is very beautiful and peaceful. The city recently put in a trail through our neighborhood leading up to and around Kiest Park. It’s not too far from Bishop Arts District, which TH has featured.

Our Favorite Social Media of the Month...

Regarding September’s “Most Amazing Vistas”: The Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells might not be a “vista,” but we knew we would soon see family when we saw it.

We enjoy every issue. We even give a gift subscription to our grown children every year for Christmas. Love it!
