178 years ago General Sam Houston defeated General Santa Ana right around the corner from here at San Jacinto. Here’s a bonus question, What was San Jacinto named after? Happy Birthday Texas and to my bud Larry Wayne Lindelow. I think Larry was at the battle, off on the side lines because he was too old to fight.
I hope you had a great Easter. As always it was a fantastic turn out at Deep Hole Park for the Sunrise Service. Fog and all. I gotta admit the preacher rolled with it. Job well done all the way around.
Team Dowell worked their magic at the fish fry. Not only did they cook all that awesome fish, they bought and donated all that awesome fish to your Civic Club for this little fund raiser. That’s pretty cool. One more reason why I love living here. Thanks all the way around Dowells!
I got the chance to drop in on the Deviled Egg-stravaganza put on by Caldwells. It’s sorta like art you can eat. Tasty, tasty art. You haven’t lived till you’ve had one of Diana Chronisters Deviled Scotch Egg. And the Eggs with Caviar? Yum! Pass the Rolaids.
I was coming back on the Island early Sunday morning. I made a trip to Shipley’s for the Sunrise Service crowd and was treated to the sight of our brand new street lamps in action. I think they look awesome. It will be really cool when they bury some of the power lines. Very nice indeed.
In case you missed it we have another celebrity artist amongst us. Roselyn Pierce will have some of her awesome photo art available at the Art Walk in Galveston. “I also will have my photo art hanging at Affaire d Art on Postoffice for Art walk so please pop in and see me too” Thanks for the heads up Roselyn, If MJ and I get a chance to do the Art Walk again this year we’ll definitely stop by. Neighbors, If you haven’t seen some of Roselyn’s art on Facebook or hanging in some of the local business’ you need to check it out at the Art Walk. If you miss it you’re cheating yourself.
