I have traveled all over the state of Texas and the courthouses in the northern part of this great state are absolutely the most beautiful.
On July 12, your courthouse made quite an impression on my 6-year-old granddaughter. Their family drove from Amarillo to Weatherford for a wedding that weekend. As they drove down State Highway 51 toward the square, my little granddaughter saw the Parker County Courthouse and anxiously asked her mom and dad, “Are we at Disney World?!?”
She was absolutely sure the Parker County courthouse was Cinderella’s Castle in the Magic Kingdom. They had a hard time convincing her it was not the castle. She was sure they were back at Disney World.
Now, the imagination of a child is a marvelous thing, but for a courthouse to inspire such a notion in a child speaks volumes about the beauty and architecture of this magnificent landmark.
Parker County residents should be very proud of this historic building. It is beautiful, but to one 6-year-old girl from Amarillo, it is Cinderella’s castle in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.

Random acts of kindness thanked
My sincere thanks to the lady in the black SUV who waited and offered to take me anywhere I needed to go after my car accident in the 200 block of Adams Drive near McAlister’s.
Also, thanks to the kind words of a lady named Sandy, the man in the camo shirt who was a witness and stayed to speak to police and to anyone else who showed thoughtfulness.
God Bless each of you. You are wonderful examples of “stepping up when needed.”
I will not forget your kindness.
