Is It That Time Already?

On a shopping trip this weekend I saw what may be the first one of the year. A Christmas tree! On September 15th.

At this particular store, the Christmas tree was fully decorated, and the snow globes, stockings, and Christmas cards were already for sale. Right there next to the Halloween decorations.

How early is too early?

Thieves Hit Lufkin Business That Caters to Kids

Who would rob kids of the opportunity to jump, bounce, and have fun?

A Lufkin business is trying to figure out how to move on after being hit by burglars. The Print Shack on N. Raguet Street in Lufkin was robbed last week, and the thieves took about $50,000 worth of bounce houses and equipment that the store rents for parties and backyard gatherings.

What is the Most Common Item Hotel Travelers Leave Behind?

Have you ever checked out of a hotel, traveled home, and then realized you left something behind in the room?

I have. On a road trip to the north, my family stayed at a hotel in Wichita, Kansas, and when we got home we could only find one Dora The Explorer sock. In the process of jumping on the bed and running around the room, our 3-year old at the time must have shed a sock and a cleaning person whose daughter also may have had just one sock, hit the jackpot.

What is the most common item hotel travelers leave behind? It has something to do with your smart phone.

Texas Deer Season Right Around The Corner

I'm optimistic that we'll have a chill in the air very soon, and with daytime heating being put to bed, that can only signify one thing -- deer hunting season in Texas is this close.

There were no safety classes when my daddy taught me to shoot 35 years ago, and reflecting back on those Kodak moments, me holding .30-06 (thirty-aught-six) shells, let alone loading up, would have been enough to scare "Billy The Kid".

Should have seen the expression on his face when I told him that I was - shooting - for a career in law enforcement.

Do You Wash Your Hands in Public?

Do you wash your hands EVERY time you use a public restroom?

Perhaps you wash your hands religiously after using the restroom at a store or restaurant, but not so much at work. Who cares, you know all those people in the office and they're like family, right? You can let the hand-washing slide there. Ew! Family members and those donut-eating co-workers have germs too.

Just how many people skip washing their hands at public restrooms and go ahead and spread the germs?

Eva Longoria Offers New Steakhouse for Women

Tell me if you think this idea will catch on in East Texas.

Eva Longoria is opening a new steakhouse in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve called "She," and it caters to women. Apparently the steaks will be smaller, cuz us gals just need a few bites and then we're ready to get on with the night. Something tells me the prices won't be small though.

What will guys eat?

Lufkin Woman Participates in Miss Texas USA Pageant This Weekend

20-year old Annabel Rivera is a 2010 graduate of Lufkin High School, who hasn't exactly been taking it easy after high school. She's been attending SFA and pursuing fame and fortune in beauty pageants. She'll compete along with 113 other Texas woman this weekend in the Miss Texas USA Pageant in Houston.

It hasn't been an easy road for Rivera, who became fascinated with pageants after watching them on TV. Once she went through the application process and became accepted, she still needed to raise the money for the registration fee and that wasn't easy.

Kids Rake In Allowance Money

Kids have a pretty sweet situation with allowance money these days.

I think I scored $2 per week from my parents to start, and then later on I got an extra $1.50 or $2 for mowing certain sections of the yard. That's how I could afford those hot eleven dollar jeans!

The average allowance nowadays is just over $16 a week or $65 per month, according to the American Institute of CPA's. That comes out to about $780 each year.

Thieves Love the Honda Accord

The Honda Accord seems to be one of the most common vehicles seen on the roads, not only across the US, but right here in East Texas. Driving on the Highway 59 we see tons of Accords, mixed in with several domestic pickup trucks and foreign and domestic SUVs. I’m rockin’ a Chevy Traverse, packed full of car seats, diaper bags, and scattered discarded Cheerios. And you?

If you drive a Tahoe, rest assured, it’s not likely to be stolen. But if you drive a foreign car, you’re chances of having it ripped off are pretty good. Yikes!
