In Thursday's paper, we'll have a cool story package on mums. People not familiar with Texas homecoming traditions, like myself (three years ago) or new photographer, Marie De Jesus, probably haven't heard of mums

For the uninitiated, a homecoming mum is an oversize mum corsage decorated with three-foot long streamers in the school colors, bells, charms, banners, little plush animals done up in bows, sparkly letters, even Christmas tree lights (source: internet research).

Check out our print package on Thursday for more on mums.

Also, on the enclosed video, you'll see a couple of comedians in staff members Eric Jensen and John Hornberg.

As always, thanks for reading (and watching).
