Skeeter’s Found a Home!

If you read a post I put up here last week, you know that my wife Sweetie and I have been hunting for a house to rent in Victoria. Well, y'all can stop searching for us now...we've found a home! It's a nice house on the northeast side of Victoria, with plenty of room for me, Sweetie, my "bonus" son, Kris (who lives with us due to a physical disability), our three dogs and 2 cats. We hope to be all moved in before the end of April.

Goodbye, North Star Drive Ball Field!

If you haven't driven up North Star Drive in Victoria recently (that's the street where the KIXS 108/Townsquare Media studios and offices are), then you may not have seen the flurry of earth-moving activity happening on the piece of land in the middle of the two sections of the street.
