More about our recent fishing trip to Galveston. Tuesday, September 9. Wind and tides bring strange items to the beach. Among the seaweed this trip we found three, relatively rare, large seeds. Some were heart shaped, mahogany brown, and two to almost three inches in diameter. A quick glance reminded me of a buckeye seed and later research showed the seeds to be good luck charms like buckeyes. One looked exactly like a little...

Community news is scant this week. As I wrack my brain as to what has been happening lately I can only focus on the weather and how nice the norther and rain has been this past week. It made for a good weekend. I’m sure it also made the Rains County Fair much more enjoyable for the patrons who attended. I passed by the fairgrounds Friday and Saturday and from what I could tell there was a really good crowd of people there. Happy...

I know it is a little early, but does anyone know of houses that could benefit from a new coat of paint? The SSWC will be asking for houses to paint very soon. Look around your neighborhood in Brashear and let me know. I do not mind contacting that person asking if they would like to have their house painted. Elton Stewart took me up on my offer for a visit this morning. He stopped by and wanted to tell me that the Stewart Family is...

More on the eight day Galveston fishing trip. Saturday, September 6. Day 3. Our camp was southwest of Galveston at Jamaica Beach. Today we traveled back to Roll Over Pass to fish with our group. While riding the ferry we watched porpoises and birds. A group of first class birdwatchers trained their expensive binoculars skyward as they watched a fairly uncommon magnificent frigate bird. These large sea birds are related to albatrosses...

   September is scooting right along and before we know it fall will be here. I am already looking forward to the cooler temperatures that are supposed to arrive this weekend. Catching up with some news that happened back in July, Sharon (Weaver) Casey, filled me in on some of the happenings in our neighboring community of Greenview. On July 6 the Greenview Cemetery was dedicated as a Historic Texas Cemetery. The designation medallion...

Sometime between 6:45 and 7:50 on this morning (the times that Chip and I left for work), Wedneday, September 10th, a large limb fell on FM 1536 and was blocking one lane. The weather was not stormy, so there seemed to be no explanation as to why it snapped. Thankfully it did not fall on a vehicle. Rheston Sills stopped and, after I took some pictures, we were able to pull the branches off the road. TxDOT was notified about clearing...

If you haven’t heard yet, there is a great chance of cooler weather coming our way. This is great news. Maybe the grasshoppers will disappear with this cool front. Happy Anniversary to Teresa and Leonard Rocha. Teresa wanted to wish Leonard a Happy 34th Anniversay so she called me. I am thrilled that she called. Thirty four years is a great milestone to reach. Congratulations. It is the little things in life that can make you smile....
