    The groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical; Pecos Bill with his coyote family, his rattlesnake Shake (that served as his lasso) and his true love the catfish-riding Slue-Foot Sue (Neil Armstrong may have been the first MAN to set FOOT on the moon but Sue banged her HEAD on it many years earlier, after being thrown by Bill's appropriately named horse, Widow-Maker); the sounds of happy children heard in the Hamilton Hotel, Laredo, even when no children are near; the black eyed boy, presumably a BEK, who terrified a large airman on a military base; strange phenomena at the Emily Morgan Hotel, near the Alamo in San Antonio (the Alamo itself is said by some to be the site of paranormal phenomena); the strange phenomena at the Driskill Hotel, Austin, including the odd sensation experienced by guests who stare at the third floor picture of a child holding flowers; and the unexplained phenomena and spectres of the Hotel Lawrence, Dallas, including the ghost of a gambler, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Texas.
