Extreme Home Makeover is in Floresville, TX. Everyone was so excited to learn that Extreme Home Makeover was planning their last project to air here in Floresville, TX.   THEN,  when I was told who it was to honor I was even more excited.  This soldier was badly wounded in Iraq.  His name is Shilo Harris and he has a wonderful family behind him.  His wife Kathreyn and his children. The reason this is so special for me is that my first listing in  Floresville was the home that Shilo & Kathreyn bought.  While I was not the buyers agent but the listing agent, I did get to meet them and as you go through the contract period you learn something of both your client and the other agent's clients.    My seller Randy has become someone I consider to be a great person and a friend.  Shilo and his...

Opry Night in Floresville, TX sponsored by the Wilson County Historical Society Due to the hard work and dedication of La Juana Newman-Leus and Viola Henke the premiere of the Opry Night in Floresville, TX was a success. The Wilson County Historical Society decided to have an old fashioned opry with country and gospel music on November 3, 2011. The turnout was great and good fun was had by all. We saw some of the dancing that we had seen in our younger days as many turned out on the dance floor. Some even did the polka.

Yesterday, I heard a noise that I had not heard in a long time. It was a lawnmower hard at work.  Astounding.  It is for us in South Texas as we have been so drought plagued this year we have not had to mow our lawns in weeks.  While that may be a good thing, the looks of the lawns is not.  Most are dying and have become sparse.  So when it rained last week it was a very welcome sight for all of us.    Then the sound of lawnmowers began again.  We hope that sound continues a lot in the future because we NEED the RAIN so badly. Wilson and all the surrounding counties are being plagued by the lack of rain in the number of fires that are occurring.  The roads are dotted with burned patches.  With every burned patch you see there is a story.   Someone was careless and started a fire.  Then ...
