Toadvine, Alabama- had a friend in college from Toadvine! There is even a book...

Trickem, Alabama
Vocation, Alabama
Yelling Settlement, AL
Zip City, Alabama


They did leave out Palmer and Remlap- the Palmer family apparently had a falling out, so the disgruntled ones moved and named their town Remlap (Palmer spelled backwards ).


And the town we live in used to be called "Jugtown" (they made jugs lol), and they drew the new name out of a hat (from a few finalists) .

HOW GREAT IS TEXAS ??!!!

Here is a list of actual places to travel in Texas .


The town I live in is called Plano but is mispronounced. (It should be pronounced Plahno.) It is a Spanish word meaning flat. There are virtually no hills. Another Dallas suburb only a few miles away that is Spanish in origin is called Las Colinas which is the opposite of Plano (The Hills). Yep, it is hilly.
