Tour of Garland

Today since I had to go to Garland, I thought I would take my camera along and photograph some of the highlights so you could see where I spent my teen-age years. They say you can take the girl out of Garland, but you can't take Garland out of the girl. Well, I'll leave that up to you guys...

In Garland, there is something for everyone, whether you are a farmer, a Buddhist, a Mexican person, a hungry person, a person who needs things cleaned, a republican, a person who needs an education (as long as you've had your shots), or perhaps even a person who sells propane and propane accessories.

I hope you will enjoy this mild photographic adventure through the place we lovingly call The Land of Gar...or The Real Arlen.

Nice work T. I doubt that National Geographic could have done a better job of exploring the jungles of Texas' most mysterious suburb.

You forgot to include Resistol - the worlds largest cowboy hat factory, which lovingly resides next to the new jail.

It was great to see those pics! I think I may have included a pic of Duck Creek... it was cool when I was young. also the Smiley's BBQ if it is still there was the sight of Burger King in High School and we used to go there and get hash browns and Dr. Pepper before school. I love how Big G has gotten very international.
