My Hometown Fun

My hometown is unlike any other (at least down here in Texas). Texarkana is a border city that lies on the Texas-Arkansas border in the northeast part of the state of Texas (southwest Arkansas). Texarkana gets its name from the three states that surround it (Tex-,Texas; -ark-,Arkansas; -ana,Louisiana).

Well the coolest thing about Texarkana is going downtown to the post office. When anyone new comes here for the first time, this is the place I try to take them. Right in front of the post office doors, there is a sign and a line that indicate the stale line of Arkansas and Texas. It is truly a time when you can be in 'two places at once'.

Me in Texas, my legs in Arkansas
