.
Me and my Mustang; we went for a ride last night before church. There isn't anything very exciting in Cut And Shoot, mainly I just wanted to you to know it's there.
.
Cut And Shoot is located east of Conroe, Texas, about 40 miles north of Houston. It stretches as a wide place in the road for approximately six miles with car lots, car repair places, gas stations, resale places and a few others
.
There isn't even a good restaurant out there! The most exciting place is the (motorcycle) chopper place. I haven't visited there.
.
I had promised readers that I would put some Cut and Shoot city pictures on today, so here goes.

Very obvious, this is the nice volunteer fire station.

I stayed on Texas Highway 105 but I was able to get all the public buildings.

.

There are little hills and acreages north, back behind these buildings. My friend lives on about eight acres, he even has a small saw mill. .

The post office is fast. I mailed a Christmas card here one evening and the day after it was in my sister's mail box in Iowa. It's quaint inside too, with all those glass windowed brass mail boxes.

None of the businesses are in skyscraper buildings here!

I didn't go over to Grangerland (Texas). Instead I hurried those two miles on to Conroe, they were having fried catfish and hush puppies for supper at the First Baptist Church.

Grangerland is located south of Conroe, Texas, down the road about ten miles. It has a school and more small businesses, nothing very new there either.

.

Read about these towns the Handbook of Texas (link to Cut And Shoot article), the city's (C&S) Web page (link), or on the Wikipedia article (link) or Google it yourself from "Results 1 - 10 of about 1,960,000 for cut and shoot, texas. (0.13 seconds)."

The Cut-N-Shoot H.O.G. Chapter #5013 (link) is one of the largest in the nation. They do a lot of charitable work, like Christmas Toys For Kids runs, food drives, etc.

If I had a Harley Hog I would ride with them, that's for sure.

Hi Jim ~~ Glad to see you are enjoying your journey (not trip)
But what a strange name for a town!!

All the best to you and Mrs.Jim.

Thanks for the pictures Jim. I enjoyed that tour of Cut and Shoot.

I also enjoyed reading BP's story so far!! I'll keep reading to find out how this story ends. I think you have a budding writer in the family!

I sure enjoyed the tour! I think I like the town hall building the best. It actually has an old western look to it, and for moment, I thought I saw John Wayne standing there.
Small towns are quaint. I like them.

Hello Jim,
I'm writing from South Eastern Ohio. I have been communicating with a friend around that area in Spring, Texas. He is "Ranger Andy" and his website is: http://www.sohk.us . I've lived in Texas 3 times: Once in 1978 when I joined the US Air Force (Lackland AFB, San Antonio TX; Texarcana TX in 1999 and Wimberly TX (SW of Austin) in 2000. I told a friend one time about Interstate 10, you drive and drive, and drive and it seems like you've not gotten ANYWHERE. His response? "Yeah, I used to have a old Ford pickup truck that was the same way!!" Thank you for posting the photos of "Cut and Shoot". Don
