Once A Year

Once in a while, you may come across a group of people who just seem to click. I am involved in a group of artisans in Wilson County, who work together in order to put on an event that combines so much talent, it is destined to be something no one in Texas will wantContinue reading “Once A Year”

Queen of the Rodeo

We would have loved to get Grand Moye on a horse, a pony really. We just could not take the chance, even though our trusty little Welsh gelding is the most intelligent and laid back equine I have ever known. Luckily, my mother-in-law did not miss the experience. We kept her busy and entertained withContinue reading “Queen of the Rodeo”

We tried to get her to have a sip of red wine for the antioxidant properties of “resveratrol and the flavonoids” butContinue reading “Swining and Dining”

My Kind Of Town

We walked just about everywhere that we wanted to go. The weather in Chicago was especially nice over the week-end before Saint Patrick’s Day. Lots of the same stores that we have in San Antonio, but bigger, like Borders,Barnes & Noble and the Target on Roosevelt is two stories…. HUGE. We bought a broom andContinue reading “My Kind Of Town”
