Ode to the Crape Myrtle:
I think that I shall never see
Anything quite so lo-ve-ly
A tree that blooms while we sweat
And summer isn’t here yet.
A bush that looks
Like a bouquet
To make us forget
That one day
It will be hot
Better pray for rain
So we don’t have to water.
And the end of spring.
And the beginning of summer.
One season ends.
As the saying goes:
“When one door closes,
A window opens.”
Which doesn’t make sense.
Why doesn’t another door open?
Why is it a window?
We don’t go through a window like we do a door.
We might jump out of one.
Or open one for more air.
Sounds like guarded optimism.
Unless…unless…the window is as big as a door.
If you are in need of windows or doors, try Country Collectibles.
Or Mason Resale Barn.
Or Mason Thrift Store.
If you want new ones, go to Mason Building Supply & Rental.
They carry just about everything.
And they can order just about anything.
And for the same price or close to what you pay in the big city.
Save wear and tear on your vehicle.
Support your local businesses.
You might be surprised at what all is available here.
Flooring at Texas Building Center on Hwy 87 south.
Paint at R. Grosse & Sons.
Tools made in the USA at Napa Auto.
Custom made boots, Mason County wine, fine art, fresh bread and pastries.
Cocoa Luna’s handmade chocolates now handled by Good to Go.
On the run?

On the square.
So don’t go anywhere.
