Last Sunday morning, the perfect storm blew through Southeast Texas, one that could easily sink boats.

“I got up at 7 a.m., went outside and the wind was dead calm,” says Sabine Lake guide Jerry Norris. “The forecast was showing that the front would be moving through around noon, or maybe a little earlier. We had been catching a lot of trout on the north end of the lake, and it was tempting to load the boat and head out. But having been caught on the water with a cold front moving through, we decided to cancel the trip and set up for another day.”

I’ve put the dates of Nov. 3-5 on my calendar and maybe you should too.

Rose loving folks from all over Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Louisiana will be at the welcome reception that kicks off the convention at Tyrrell Park Garden Center Building on Friday, Nov. 3, 6 p.m.


This is Starr, a cute female spaniel mix who weighs about 20 pounds.  Starr is about 1 1/2.   She seems lonely and uncertain about people, and doesn’t understand a kind voice or loving hand. Starr needs an owner who will be patient, nurturing and understanding. An experienced owner who has worked with animals who have fear would be ideal. Starr would not do well in a home with children. She is a dog that needs love. Will YOU give her that chance?
