Great news! Kim Hughes of the Houston Chronicle called on Tuesday wanting to interview me for an article in the paper. I said sure, you bet! So she asked me a lot of questions about growing up, the website, the “Just Ask” t-shirt and it was really fun. And she was just wonderful! If Kim is any indication of the type of people who work for the Chronicle, I’m going to be a lifelong subscriber.
But there’s more.
I just finished a photo session for the Houston Chronicle at my house. The photographer, Clayton R. McKee, was real nice and made me feel very comfortable. He took photos of me and my Mom in our “Just Ask!” t-shirts, me playing pool and stuff like that.
I am not sure when the article is coming out but you can be sure that when it does, I’ll post it here! Thank you all again so much for your support. I am truly blessed to have so many wonderful friends!
Write me and let me know how you are enjoying the site.
Last night was the 45th Houston Advertising Federation ADDY Awards. It was a terrific! night. I’s a big deal for me. I thank all of my friends that helped make this happen. You know who you are. I wasn’t the only one there. If you were at the event, please let me hear from you.
A great time for me. That’s right. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is celebrating its 75 year Anniversary. Alright Houston! The events starts February 27th. If you are going to see George Strait (to name just one of the good performers who will entertain us), start thinking about getting your tickets early. I hope to be one of the lucky souls that will attend. Any of the country performers will work for me. Who’s going to the Rodeo? Who will you see? I know there will be good stories to share.
The ADDY Awards program will be this weekend. I will be there, with crossed fingers. I hope to be one of the recipients of these great awards. Although I have been lucky enough to attend a few years ago, I still feel a little nervous about the big day. If I don’t win this year, it’s OK. I know I will enjoy myself. I look forward to meeting new people, who I know will become new friends to me. Wish me luck, but don’t say “break a leg.” I only have one good leg. k. Any one have ideas on how to get over the nervousness?
FYI. I have been reading and this is what I found on Valentine’s Day. There are many opinons as to who was the original Valentine, with the most popular theory that it was a clergyman who was executed for secretly marrying couples in ancient Rome. In any event, in 496 A.D. Pope Gelawius set aside February 14 to honor St. Valentine became a patron saint lovers. In the 1840s, Esther Howland, a native of Massachuestss. is given credit for sending the first Valentine cards. The spitrit of love. continues as valentines are sent with sentimental verses and children exchange valentine cards at school. I saw a lot of people buying Roses. Are you one of them? What do you think about this day, what would make Valentine’s Day special for you?
