I’m a 55 year old wife, mother, and grandmother. My husband and I own and operate 3 small community weekly newspapers and also a press where we print our 3 papers and 5 other weeklies for customers. Like most small business owners we work long hours, stretch our budget, but love what we do.
My kids and grandkids are the main focus of my hobby – photography. I also enjoy music (I play keys, sing, and play the flute) and I like to walk and train my 2 poodles, a miniature and a standard.
We live in a small rural farming community in Texas and for the most part we really enjoy it. I say – for the most part! I guess there’s always something to be negative about anywhere you live – I do wish that people here were not so clickish.
I love to write for the papers but sometimes it gets rather tedious. I also now know what “writer’s block” is all about. I decided I would enjoy “blogging” because I can write about some things there that I couldn’t and/or wouldn’t publish in our hometown paper. Well – happy reading and I look forward to getting to know many of you on-line.

He had …

Just sold some cards!

Angels Around Us

A few weeks ago the elementary aged youngsters in my Sunday School class became quite involved in the mornings conversation. They usually aren’t quite so eager to talk when it comes to the day’s lessons but would rather chit-chat amongst themselves about other topics that interest them more. But this one Sunday it was different. They were anxious to talk about times when they thought …

She's "Going Home"

Some of my first memories of sister-hood are playing in the hedge growth along side our home in Haskell, Texas. It was a long line of some sort of bushes that formed almost a fenced in like area. If I remember correctly we had gotten Ted, our brother, to “carve” out some hollow areas in the bushes and we two girls would go out and play house in the bushie rooms. We must have been fair…
