The coastal waters of Port O’Connor, Texas are a jewel of our great state. And the fish are aplenty! Trout, redfish, flounder… these are the most common fish that anglers catch and stock their freezers for that next fish fry or cookout. Throughout the generations, families and friends have made Port O’Connor their home, or even their home away from home, because of the quaint, quiet community and fishing accessibility.
Once upon a time, on a clear summer night, Cooper and Rosie watched the stars shine bright.
“This is amazing.” Rosie said with a smile. “Is that star getting closer?” Cooper thought for a while.
“It’s not getting closer, it’s just super bright. Wait a minute. Oh no, I think you’re probably right!”
“It’s headed straight for us!” Cooper started to yell. “Oh no!” Cried Rosie. “I think we should bail!”
Over the past many years, the United States military has maintained a strong presence around the world. Many military personnel are enlisted in the reserve and guard portion of our military branches. These individuals train and prepare themselves for future deployment yet maintain careers and jobs between training. Oftentimes, help is needed to sustain working relationships between service members and their employers.

We just returned from vacationing in Greece with my mother in law, Joy, and her husband, Jim.
We had a great time crawling over piles of ancient rocks and soaking up the atmosphere in the cradle of Western Civilization.
And, we learned something about Joy.
If you need someone on your team who can decipher Greek and Roman mythology and the stories of the ancient Greeks, you want Joy. If your need is for someone steeped in British and American literature or European history, you want Joy.
I’m not a runner. In fact, I really don’t like running. But I will participate in the occasional 5K fundraisers. My first one actually popped up in my Facebook timeline from 5 years ago. I was running with 2 very athletic friends who really pushed me hard! Yep, I knew then running wasn’t my thing.
