This is such a great place to live. East Texas in the fall, a true fall that is, is beautiful. The cooler mornings are great. I would love that it will not hit 90 again until next May or June.

The Fall Festival is back on the same date as the Stew Contest and there will be a lot of people in town for this event. I think there...

Witnesses, reporters, and just the ordinary curious attended the trial. Some days the testimony would go a little past noon before we dismissed for lunch. Right at noon, somebody in City Hall would flip a switch and the very loud air raid siren...

My question asking about how to get rid of mice has been answered. My friend, Wanda Jenkins said to take Bounce sheets and leave around in places mice like to congregate. She also gave me more uses for these wonderful sheets. Thank you Wanda. Melba Blount, called and told me to get a screwdriver and steel wool. Then take these with the steel wool to fill holes around pipes that are entering your house. She also mentioned that I might...

This week’s cold front is surely here! Makes me hungry for some of my favorite cold weather food – stew and chili! My condolences to three families with Miller Grove connections this week who have had loved ones that passed. Claire Moseley, Edward Clark, and Gary McLarry are three souls that have left this world since my last writing. Claire Alma (Thibault) Moseley was born Feb. 7, 1935, in Haverhill, Massachusetts. She was the...
