"Teneha, Timpson, Bobo and Blair" was a conductor's call along the small Houston East and West Texas Railway back many decades ago. East Texans who fought in World War II introduced others to the four towns as part of an urgent plea when craps shooting: "Teneha, Timpson, Bobo and Blair....Give me a seven, see if I care." Later, Tex Ritter immortalized the four towns in a venerable country-western song, "Teneha, Timpson, Bobo and Blair, let me get off just any ole where."

Beauty is only skin deep but Texas is to the bone.
