The old Texas we all knew, an uncrowded raw land with wide open space where our eyes could see forever and our view uncluttered by the influences of people, is quietly slipping away. It was a wild space that was a part of us and shaped us. Lately, there has emerged an awareness by all of us for the need for better thinking on our part towards the protection of what we have left of the old Texas. A house on a few acres may be in the forefront of many of your thoughts these days.
