Go to Big Texas.

Very often it is our business that brings us to Texas. Before we consider the importance of the trip, we have to figure out how to find some time for sightseeing and all our activity.

Very often it is our business that brings us to Texas. Before we consider the importance of the trip, we have to figure out how to find some time for sightseeing and all our activity.

Texas is big. Choices are limited by the time we have for an extra trip. Texas natural wonders, monuments of past and objects developed by the power of Nature and money are waiting for us.

Thanks to air transportation we can be changing places comfortably. We can begin our Texas adventure from one of bigger airport hubs, like: DFW (Dallas/ Fort Worth International Airport), Houston or Austin. Actually there are 29 official points of entry to the State of Texas.

The first and most important factor is the time we can be out of 1 place and visit some other city, place or Nature Monument. All the rest depends on our decision what and how to do sightseeing.

Texas is waiting for us with all its wonders, comfortable hotels, cozy restaurants and friendly, open-hearted people. Start planning your trips when you are in Texas before you go to Texas.

Do not mess with Texas

A Texas man was wounded after he fired a gun at an armadillo in his yard and the bullet ricocheted back to hit him in his face, the county sheriff said Friday.

Cass County Sheriff Larry Rowe said the man, who was not identified, went outside his home in Marietta, Texas, at around 3 a.m. local time Thursday morning. He spotted the armadillo on his property and opened fire.

“His wife was in the house. He went outside and took his .38 revolver and shot three times at the armadillo,” Rowe said.

The animal’s hard shell deflected at least one of three bullets, which then struck the man’s jaw, he said.

The man was airlifted to a nearby hospital, where his jaw was wired shut, according to Rowe.

The status of the animal is unknown.

“We didn’t find the armadillo,” the sheriff said.
