Commerce and the Rails

Many West Texas towns like Hamlin have no tracks left, and we could sure use some commerce that stops here today [The Inside Track, March 2022].

Blessed Comfort

I want to participate in the Blessing Box Project when I retire [Hope in a Box, March 2022]. Such a hard time for a woman.

Texas Praline Sheet Cake

Well-Deserved Decadence

I have to say, besides the original chocolate Texas sheet cake, this is the best, most decadent cake I have EVER had [Texas Praline Sheet Cake, March 2022]. I’ve literally been thinking about it all week.

Well Put

I love that section in the magazine [Finish This Sentence]. It awakens the thought process in a lot of people.

Threads of Truth

When I was 10, we visited cousins in Ingram [Just Add Adventure, March 2022].
We went to a river to play, and it had a smooth concrete small dam with water pouring over it. I had a blast sliding down it time after time until I realized that the seat of my favorite pair of shorts was in shreds.

Enduring Cookware

I inherited my grandmother’s cast iron, which she inherited from her mother [Cast-Iron Comeback, March 2022]. It makes the best cornbread and fried eggs. To imagine how many meals were cooked in these pans just blows my mind.

Using the cast-iron skillet my mother got for a wedding gift in 1943.
