We hope that this week finds you all in good health.  Our weather is clearing up after almost a week of sporadic rain.

One retired Texas Ranger was a  Vietnam Marine Vet. At least one of the San Antonio TV stations told of the birthday of ...

We closed in the exterior walls with tar paper, then OSB (oriented strand board) and another coat of tar paper. This was done so stucco can be replaced when the...
