Today is Weary Willie Day, and it was with a certain amount of trepidation that I clicked on this explanatory link, and was relieved to see that it refers to a clown character introduced and made famous by Emmett Kelly long before any… Continue reading Random Thursday: The 20th Century CCM Edition
We were recently in Fort Stockton and while we were there, we visited one of our favorite stores, Bella Terrazas. Bella Terrazas is owned and managed by Amy Terrazas, a special family friend, and the store is filled from floor to ceiling with an amazing variety of decor, almost all of which was hecho en… Continue reading Solving a Catholic Mystery Statue
Note: This is the last in a series of posts from The Lost Gazette Chronicles, focusing on those that fall into the “Faith” category.

I read the last two chapters of the Old Testament book of Nehemiah this morning, as a part of my… Continue reading Professional Thanksgiver: Could you do it?

I’ve previously alluded to a redesign/reboot of the Gazette in which some content didn’t get carried over into the new package; this is an example, with a few minor tweaks.
