Delete all text boxes in Word 2010

How do you delete all text boxes and their contents in Word 2010?  I am guessing I will need a macro to remove them all.

Are they drawing text boxes?

Sub Q_28250528()
       Dim wShp As Word.Shape
       Dim i As Long
       For i = ActiveDocument.Shapes.Count To 1 Step -1
       Set wShp = ActiveDocument.Shapes(i)
          If wShp.Type = msoTextBox Then
               wShp.Delete
          End If
       Next i
End Sub
