The snakes eyes rolled back and he went limp. Grandpa released the snake witho...

WoodCreek Reserve is a 500-acre master-planned community located in the city of Katy, Texas (West Houston area).  If you like nature, you will love Woodcreek Reserve containing a 100-acre nature reserve together with the land, bayou and oak trees.  At times, you will see families gathered around the lake reeling their fishing rods to catch some fish.The property was originally owned by the Elizabeth Poorman-Moore family long before I-10 was even in existance right until 1996 when developers approached the family to purchase the land.  To preserve the naturally occuring beauty of the Buffalo Bayou and the majestic oak trees, the developers hired imaginative land planners to create what is now known as Woodcreek Reserve.  The neighborhood amenities boast sports fields, wooded nature trail...

It was not easy to say the least!  I want to Thank many folks including but limited to ActiveRain staff, my AR virtual friends, everyone who follows me, folks who comment on my posts and all who wished me congratulations the last few days.
