Life sometimes hits us with surprise after surprise. This seems especially true the older we become. I go to way too many funerals these days, and seldom a week goes by that I don’t get a call letting me know of the death of a friend or a relative. I said to someone at the funeral home last night, “We really have to quit meeting like this.” My friend laughed as we remembered the last occasion where we visited together.

You want to roll out the welcome mat to your home? Groundcover plants are one of the best options when you want to create that welcoming feel as guests walk up to your front door. That contiguous low lying mass of groundcover is so important in the “outdoor room” of the front yard.

Big slot reds like this one are being caught under the birds on Sabine Lake.

Good catches of reds and flounder continue to make a whole lot of anglers happy on Sabine Lake. Reds are busting the surface under the birds, trout are beginning to show up under flocks of gulls, and flounder are excellent on the upper end of the lake along the shorelines in 1 to 3 feet of water.
