Texas Tax Free Shopping Weekend Set for August

Lufkin Mall will be packed the weekend of August 17-19. That’s the time frame for this year’s Sales Tax Holiday shopping weekend.

Us gals don’t often need an excuse to shop. We’ll fight the crowds in search of a good deal any old weekend. But just in case you do need an excuse to swipe your credit card and feel good about it, the tax free weekend provides one. It always draws a huge shopping crowd, albeit mostly women and a few guys that get dragged along for the ride.

What’s tax free this year?

Lamp-Lite’s Theatre ‘Annie’, Coming To Nacogdoches [VIDEO]

Whether it's a full scale Broadway production, television special, film release, or Community Theatre performance, the plot has remained the same since 1977, when the original 'Annie' debuted to audiences with all the pomp and circumstance it was billed at.

I've had the pleasure of seeing this show some ten times in my lifetime, with each one awesome in its own right.  A huge supporter of local Community Theatre, this is one of the hidden treasures of seeing the show in a largely intimate setting, and now is your chance to join me in welcoming 'Annie' to Nacogdoches.

Would You Be Part of a Wife-Carrying Competition in Lufkin?

These athletes are serious! Check out the video for the recent wife-carrying contest, won for the 4th time by a couple from Finland.

It got me thinking, what if we organized a similar event in Lufkin? Husbands, are you strong enough to pile your wives on your shoulders and carry her over hurdles and through water without dumping her and without falling down?

Governor Rick Perry in East Texas for the 4th

Before heading back to Lufkin to observe the fireworks extravaganza at Ellen Trout Zoo, I took a side trip to Big Sandy.  Located at the crossroads of U.S. Highway 80 and Texas State Highway 155, the city isn't all that "Big", but on Independence Day, it became larger than life itself.

Parents Go to Great Lengths to Make the 4th Fun

It’s an interesting dilemma for parents today. Kids love watching fireworks, but the public displays can’t start until it gets dark, and that means we have to wait 9:30 or 10:00 to catch a glimpse of the fireworks, and by the time we get the kids home to bed it’s 11:00 or later. That’s LATE if you have kids under five years old. And then Thursday is a big ole mess with those little biological clocks thrown off and grouchiness galore. What to do, what to do.

Wanna enact our plan? We’re having a wild and crazy 4th of July party at home today. It keeps the kids excited and entertained, it involves legal fireworks, and you can have the young ‘uns asleep by 9:00 or 9:30. See how elaborate it gets.
