Seems the first snowfall is always enjoyed by so many of our kids and grownup kids, too. Now, all we have to do is put up with it and the colder temperatures for the next few months. Congratulations to Dardanell "Beanie" Randa who was featured in the Pine Journal's Volunteer Spotlight...

Slices of Life: Lost in time
My calendar tells me where to go and what to do. With one quick glance I get a visual on how many days I have to prepare for Thanksgiving or whether my husband's birthday falls on a Thursday or Friday. By this time of year, the calendar is well-used and well-worn. It has been examined,...

While there, we took a city tour with a step-on guide and toured the Kennedy assassination site and museum, then to Fort Worth for a few hours at the stockyards. We toured the Lyndon B. Johnson Library and Museum in Austin

According to some weather experts, we will have a colder and snowier winter than usual. A beautiful and meaningful memorial service was held Oct. 18 for Konnie Smith Webb. There was so much love and thoughtfulness in the service and afterwards at the luncheon.

Slices of Life: We all share the same start
There are 7.5 billion of us living, eating and breathing here on planet Earth. And although each of us is unique, we have one thing in common. Each of us, without exception, began our journey in the same way: as newborn babies. Naked and afraid. Think about that. Let it sink in. Look...

Hand soap is hand soap, right? It turns out I hit the jackpot with my random choice of product. Like I said, I didn't notice right away. But when I did the words on the label became impossible to ignore: Miracle Marula oil.
