Enjoy the Journey 🐎

SUNDAY May 28, 2023

“I’m pleased with my life, with the journey.”

Tina Turner

The “Horses and Humans” story in this issue by Ann Bush is about more than the connection between humans and horses. It describes the many venues in our region that offer recreation in nature. A ride through one of the parks or ranches on horseback is a challenging yet gratifying experience worth pursuing.

Other stories in this issue also describe risks taken along life’s journey. Adelaida Cuellar probably had no idea where her cooking skills would take her family after they settled in Kaufman County, but the El Chico empire she started remains a legend more than a century later. — Lisa Tang

Horses and Humans: Setting the Pace for Fun

Riding horses among the wildflowers, tall trees, and wide open spaces of East Texas is a favorite way for many to spend their time. Riders claim the natural movement of the horse is calming and relaxing and experts agree it’s not only fun but beneficial to good health.

There are various places for humans to take their own horses or find horses to rent for leisure or lessons among the region’s best views. READ MORE.

THIS TIME OF YEAR

Mama Cuellar Started El Chico Empire in Kaufman

Adelaida Cuellar was born in Nuevo León, Mexico, May 30, 1871, and immigrated to Texas with Macario Cuellar in 1892. The couple were married in Laredo and later moved to Kaufman County where they worked on a small farm.

Adelaida began selling chili and tamales in 1926 at the county fair to supplement the income of her large family with 12 children. Two years later their sons Frank and Amos opened a restaurant in downtown Kaufman featuring their mother’s cooking. The restaurant was known as Cuellar’s Café and Adelaida became known as Mama Cuellar. READ MORE.

LIFESTYLE & ENTERTAINMENT

Check Out the View at Love’s Lookout

Just four miles north of Jacksonville is Love’s Lookout with a great view of the Upper East Side of Texas. It is a rest stop for travelers and a delightful destination all of its own.

Visitors go for picnics, to take photographs, and to soak up the scenic surroundings. At an elevation of 720 feet above sea level and rising 240 feet above the surrounding terrain, the vaulted ridge affords a panoramic view of the eastern horizon as far out as 30 miles on a clear day. READ MORE.
