Missed the Rain

We were in Florida over the weekend for our friends' wedding reception, so we missed the all-day rain showers. Did we need the rain, or what? I checked our ten-day forecast this morning and we aren't expected to receive another drop for at least a week. But we all know this could change in an instant...

Today we have clear, sunny skies and a high of 80-something. I love autumn gifts: cooler nights and warm days; pumpkin patches; and State Fair of Texas. Our presentation on behalf of Texas Department of Agriculture's GO TEXAN program is this afternoon 4-6pm. We will be in the Food and Fiber Pavillion on-stage in front of the GO TEXAN General Store. In case you are unfamiliar with GO TEXAN, it's a marketing program designed to promote Texas-made, Texas-grown products. Many members display their wares in the General Store. From jellies and hot sauces to organic cotton tshirts to Texas-grown plants, GO TEXAN members contribute significantly to our state's economy.

If you are unable to attend our presentation this evening we hope you will stop by the GO TEXAN area before the State Fair wraps up this Sunday, October 22nd.

Sorry, Christy, we just missed you as traffic delayed us. i would encourage everyone to head on out to the Fair this year as I had seemed to have more fun this year than in past years.
