We love going to farmers markets all over North Central Texas, We had heard that the Ennis Farmers Market was a great little market so decided to check it out. We arrived around 10:30 and, sure enough, it was in full swing and had quite a crowd. The market is situated on N. Dallas Street between West Ennis Avenue and West Knox, in the middle of downtown. The street is blocked off and the market area swings around the corner onto West Knox. There is plenty of parking within easy walking distance. The booths were set up in the middle of the street and allowed for easy strolling and shopping.

There appears to be a quiet epidemic underway involving our elderly citizens in our country and maybe closer to home than we think, in our county! Many people are not even aware of it! It is not the type of epidemic that would be visible in the form of say a sickness or when thousands of people show up at a hospital. But it is still a terrible thing and can cause untold anguish, pain and financial loss to families.
Many victims have no idea they have this sickness amongst them till after a relative or close family member has past away. It is only then the family realizes that a family member

Llano Estacado Winery in Lubbock has been producing excellent wines since 1976 and is the largest premium winery in Texas. I enjoyed visiting Llano Estacado in May and since that visit, they will be building a new public tasting room and visitor’s center this year.
One of their recent releases is the 2010 vintage “1836” Texas Red Table Wine which is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Syrah. There was a 2008 vintage of the “1836” with a different blend, but not a 2009 because Llano Estacado could not get the fruit they wanted.
The 2010 vintage has done very well in wine competitions. For example the “1836” won a Double Gold at the 2013 San Francisco International Wine Competition.
As mentioned, the 2010 vintage is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Syrah from grapes in the High Plains and Far West Texas. It was aged for 28 months in 59-gallon French and American oak barrels and was bottled in March 2013. The wine has a deep red color with flavor tones of red and black fruits and black pepper. Tannins are medium with a medium plus finish.

This past Saturday, the 12th, my morning excursion was to visit the Midlothian Farmers Market located in the Log Cabin Park in the center of downtown Midlothian. The Farmers Market has been operating for several years, and while not one of the largest in our area, it is certainly one of the most pleasant to visit.
Two women with faith and a mission, to help find a cure for breast cancer. "Glamour Girls" was launched in 2007 in San Francisco, California by sisters Anana and Madrid Simmons. The impetuous for Glamour Girls occurred when Madrid was diagnosed with breast cancer in May, 2007. After going through treatments and chemotherapy, Madrid did not want to lose her glamour.

Just as mothers and sons share a special bond, so too do fathers and daughters. It was that way with my Dad and me. My Dad loved to tell of coming home from work late at night when I was a baby. When he opened the door to the apartment, there I would be, standing in my baby bed, waiting for him. If he looked my way and smiled, I would grin from ear to ear and bob up and down until he would come pick me up.
He would carry me to the kitchen and hold me on his knee while he ate a bedtime snack of cereal and milk. He would give me a bite and then he would take a bite. Sometimes he would bypass me and my pouty bottom lip would stick out and I would almost start to cry. That would all straighten out when he would give me another bite. This special time we shared lasted for many months. "I felt a little sad when I came home one night and you were sound asleep in your crib," he said. After that I did not wake up at night anymore.
It was the late 1940's, and we lived in an apartment in downtown Fort Worth. The downtown was alive on Saturdays with people coming to town to shop. To give my Mom a break, she would dress me up in a frilly little dress and Daddy would take me with him and we would walk all over downtown and window shop. I was just the right size to sit in the crook of his arm and my little chubby hands would hold onto his shoulder. He bragged about how people would tell him what a pretty little girl he had.
