I was living in Houston. I had just been laid off and my Mom had just died. I was at home alone. I saw the whole thing unfold on tv in real time. When the first tower was hit, I thought it was horrible accident. After the second tower was hit, and the reports of the other plane crashes, I wondered if "today is the end of the world?". I couldn't comprehend what the people in, near the Twin Towers were going through. Or what their friends and families must be feeling. I had visited NY a couple of years earlier & treasure my picture of me & my friends on the top floor of one of the Twin Towers and the large, beautiful picture I bought of the NY skyline.

Yes, I attended the Shrimpfest in Seadrift for the first time this year. I had imagined all kinds of amazing fresh shrimp! Boiled, fried, in a gumbo, or some really original shrimp dish.....I was really disappointed when the only 2 shrimp dishes appeared to be the same ol' "carney" food. Needless to say, I didn't eat. The people where very friendly, the location was ideal on the bayfront & the band (of teenagers) where pretty good. However, real, fresh, local shrimp at the Shrimpfest is "kind of expected." Will probably go again. But I'll be sure to eat first next time.
So how much will the "changing of the road signs" cost us? We go from 55 to 70, to 75. Were does it end? 70 is fine. Where do we need to get to an extra "4 minutes" earlier? I thought we were in a recession, shouldn't we be "saving gas mileage", saving tax payer dollars....Keep it at 70. Those that want to drive 75, drive in the fast lane, and the cops should give them a "free pass".....why go through all the expense!
Is this really "news worthy"?
Seriously, David Arredondo, Jr. viciously killed a senior citizen over "rent" money? and the wife "tampered" with evidence?? That is sad, sad, sad. And yes, there is a thing called "Karma".....
This is a beautiful story. If I were in Mr. Litchfield's situation.....I would probably do the exact same thing. My 2 dogs are my "children". Light: What an "awsomely big heart" you have. God Bless you. If I (or anyone else) wanted to make a donation: blankets, dog food, clothes, perhaps money. I would hope to catch him at Christ's Kitchen sometime. Victoria Advocate - Please keep us posted on Mr. Litchfield & his family.
@ the Solis family, my sincerest sympathy on the unexpected loss of your loved one.@ Speak Up 1968 - thank you for revealing this very important missing piece of the whole story. Thank you & Great job to the unsung hero!
Personally, I do not like tattoos. I do appreciate the "artwork", if professionally done. If there is some SIGNIFICANT meaning in a "hidden" spot, I truly do not care. However, a woman in an evening gown with "tatoos" showing is a TOTAL TURNOFF & UNAPPEALING!
I admire Mr. Smith's courage, faith, and forsight. He is an inspiration! Also, he is an example; doctor's cannot preciously predict "one's expiration date", only God can. There are good doctors that can offer their educatated opinion. As far as Dr. Meyer and the Hospice of South Texas nurses, they are compasionate, experienced and special people. May God continue to bless and comfort Mr. Smith.
Dr. Hager was also my doctor. He & I joked around to make an "uncomforable situation" less uncomfortable. Dr. Hager will be dearly missed. My deepest sympathy for his family, friends and co-workers. Let's not forget, the cause of his death is speculation and it's not for us to "judge". Dr. Hager & his family will be in my prayers.
