There are Places I Remember:

College Station, Texas.  This town was formed along the railroad station of the Houston & Texas Central Railway.  It is 90 Miles northwest of Houston and 87 miles northeast of Austin.  It is also the home of Texas A&M (Agricultural & Mechanical).  The George Bush (Sr) Presidential library opened in 1997.  In 2006 Money Magazine stated it was the most educated city in Texas.  It was also home of Leon’s high school girlfriend (one of many) who probably still has some very juicy letters with his signature.

Nominate one of your favorites or your home town by emailing us.  We’ll even put you on the show (if you want).
