Saga – Part 1 of Life in Euless Texas. Back in the day I lived off old Highway 183 (now Hwy 10). You could throw a rock and hit the Dairy Queen that was right on the Highway. The Phillips 66 was next to the DQ and it served as a bus stop for the Continental Trailways that ran between Dallas and Fort Worth. Those that grew up in Hurst – Euless – Bedford remember the small town feel that the community possessed.
If you are close to my age you will remember when Airport Freeway was being built and then D/FW Airport. I recall practicing baseball at the Methodist Church on Euless Main Street, and chasing balls down into where the Freeway was being dug out.
This is the start of an ongoing Saga, where I will invite others to chime in on this Blog. Here I will list a few things that may prompt comments from others or serve as a building block for additional notes from me.
