Dressed To Kill
No Monterey High School grad would be caught “dead” in a letter sweater with an L on it. That was for Lubbock High, our crosstown rivals [Dead Certain, January 2022].

Dogs Changing Lives
Patriot Paws in Rockwall raises and trains assistance dogs for disabled military veterans [Furred Responders, January 2022]. The dogs are trained at their kennels and in several men’s and women’s prisons. This organization has changed the lives of so many veterans and their families.
Lately they have started a program where they take some of their dogs and puppies to police departments (and any organization that requests) to help with stress relief.

I made the Chicken and Dumplings Soup [Soups and Stews, January 2022], and it is incredible. Well-deserved first-place winner.

Slice of Life
For my mother’s Christmas gift, I treated her to lunch at Rebecca Rather’s place in Fredericksburg, Emma + Ollie [The Alchemy of Egg Whites, November 2021]. Rebecca chatted with Mom and me and autographed my copy of her meringue recipe featured in the November issue.
It was a wonderful Christmas gift for my 85-year-old mom.

Before Bob and Kelli Phillips [The Domino Effect, December 2021], there was Frank X. Tolbert, who wrote a column in The Dallas Morning News every week about his travels in Texas called Tolbert’s Texas, which ran from 1946 till his death in 1984.
