Congratulations to my Brother-in-Law!

My brother-in-law, Michael Rountree (a real life cowboy) has released his first book. If you are a horse-lover, you will like this one. It is a children's book, but is fun for all ages. Think Hank the Cowdog. The illustrator was a student at the high school where he teaches. You can buy it on Amazon. Way to go Mike!

School Starts

High School. The day after Labor Day is forever a day of beginning again, filled with new clothes, pens and notebooks, pimply faces, changing voices and great hope for romance. Here's where it happened for me down at the end of South Main, Weatherford, Texas.


  Old Weatherford High: not too impressive, Huh? Well just take a peek inside at our mascots: the Weatherford,


All that years ago. I found romance elsewhere and wrote a lot of books about it. Our town boomed with the development of gas wells. The success called for more streets, shopping malls and a huge Weatherford High School.

Where did you go to high school?

Don't Wear White After Labor Day

  As the end of summer approaches, I always think about the fashion rule: Don't wear white shoes or clothes after Labor Day. Does anyone know how this rule began?

This poor girl had to find out the hard way. Yikes!


Do you wear white after Labor Day?
