Get happy and start cooking

November 1, 2014

Food season is upon us, the time of year we behave like squirrels.

Think about it.

It’s not what you know, but he knows plenty

October 25, 2014

L.D. Crook was zipping north on I-35 just this side of Oklahoma when he saw the dreaded flashing lights in the rearview mirror.

Oops.

The officer asked for the Granbury resident’s driver’s license, ran a check and returned with a curious but pleasant look.

“Are you kin to General Crook?” the officer asked.

Long live Branson, Missouri!

October 25, 2014

It is a “two-syllable” town – Branson, Missouri – but worthy of way too many multi-syllabic adjectives to utter in one breath – maybe not even during an extended visit to this mid-America wonderland.

Nestled in the colorful Ozark Mountains, the community of some 10,000 residents is a vacation destination with a reputation for wholesome family entertainment that now blankets the nation and beyond.
