    Island time: Driving all night to sink our toes in the sand

    July 26, 2014

    My family and I went on our annual South Padre Island vacation earlier this month, and this year certainly did not disappoint.

    Every year I write about this vacation because, quite frankly, (other than Christmas) it’s my favorite week of the year.

    I’m so lucky that my brother and I get along so well, that I adore my sister-in-law, that my mom is my best friend, that my husband fits right in and that all of the kids are more like siblings than cousins.

    How do we bring more visitors to Granbury?

    That is the question that the City’s Marketing and Communications Department, the Tourism Advisory Board and the City Council hope to tackle with help from a new market study.

    Wendy Cahill, a concierge at The Cove, knocks, then unlocks the door.

    He's our hero

    Granbury should be extremely proud of Granbury Police Department’s Cliff Clemons.

    I was a passenger in Edie York’s vehicle after leaving a concert at Lakeside Baptist Church, and we were on our way to treat ourselves to ice cream. When we turned into the street adjacent to Walgreen’s we heard a loud noise coming from the right rear of her car.

    Is our language slipping away?

    July 19, 2014

    Until now, I wouldn’t have thought someone known as Weird Al Yankovic would try to save the English language as we know it.

    Earlier this week, Yankovic released “Word Crimes” as a video parody of Robin Thicke’s hit song, “Blurred Lines.” It highlights a few common grammar mistakes and – like most of Weird Al’s videos – thoroughly entertains with humor and creativity.
