I don’t know what you pay for your television, but whatever it is, it’s too much! The junk that is on television is just that... JUNK! Long gone are the days of really good (CLEAN) family entertainment. The “REALITY” shows are nothing but reality! Real Housewives? I don’t think so.

September. What a concept. A fine month indeed. Number nine. And it always begins with a bang. Labor Day. The official end of vacation time. And beginning of school time. September marks the end of the third quarter. And it’s the bridge between Summer and Fall. Cool. To warmer. To hot. To cooler. To warm. Blue sky changes hue. Clouds cozy up. Air feels different. Smells different. Sounds different. Summer is a thing of the past. Nearly. September.

As a long time visitor, I have always considered Mason to be the “gem” of the Hill Country. But lately, the luster is dimming. While in town for the Rodeo, I noticed the neighborhoods around the beautiful town square are overrun with feral cats and have houses whose yards are littered with discarded household items and junk cars and some are in disrepair.
