Welcome to my Blog Site :) I am so happy you stopped in. I am a part time worker, wife, mom and artist/crafter. I became a grandmother for the first time about a year ago. My passions are Stained Glass and Mixed Media Art. I am a Texas girl living in a house that my father and grandfather built in 1945. I have a loving husband and two teenage boys. My boys are talented musicians who make my life complete. I hope you enjoy reading my posts about music, my boys and grandson and just about life in general. So grab your favorite choice of drink, sit back, relax and happy blogging.

Summer Scavenger Hunt

Item #14
This castle complete with moat is now a brick and stone company.  It used to be the only Go Cart Park in Houston.  
Item #5
This hand made sign reads:  Private property. No Dumping Aloud. - It is ironic that it is posted by a dumpster, plus Aloud should be Allowed.  
Item #13 Evergreen Negro Cemetary - Former Slaves, Buffalo Soldiers and Veterans are buried. here.

AK Kelley organized the Evergreen Negro Cemetary and is buried there.  Most headstones are broken and unreadable.
