Hi everyone.

Just got off the phone with San Do from San Do Painting Supplies . He needs our whole state to pray for Bill and him.

Bill has cancer and has had a massive stroke. San Do is taking care of him. San Do is exhausted and tired.
He told me this was his first phone call without crying.

I ask everyone to please start praying for both of these guys.

If by chance you are in his area. Reach out to them, to see if they need some help.

Thank you to everyone!

Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about folks from Texas

If someone in a Lowe's store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Texas ;

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Texas ;

If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Texas ;

If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of Dallas for the weekend, you may live in Texas ;

If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Texas ;

If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Texas ;

If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Texas ;

If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Texas ;

If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph --you're going 80 and everybody's passing you, you may live in Texas ;

If you find 60 degrees 'a little chilly,' you may live in Texas ;

If you actually understand these jokes, and share them with all your Texas friends, you definitely live in Texas .

Here are some little known, very interesting facts about Texas :
1. Beaumont to El Paso : 742miles

2. Beaumont to Chicago : 770 miles

3. El Paso is closer to California than to Dallas
4. World's first rodeo was in Pecos , July 4, 1883.
5. The Flagship Hotel in Galveston is the only hotel in North America built over water. Destroyed by Hurricane Ike - 2008!
6. The Heisman Trophy was named after John William Heisman who was the first full-time coach at Rice University in Houston .
7. Brazoria County has more species of birds than any other area in North America .
8. Aransas Wildlife Refuge is the winter home of North America 's only remaining flock of whooping cranes.
9. Jalapeno jelly originated in Lake Jackson in 1978.
10. The worst natural disaster in US history was in 1900, caused by a hurricane in which over 8,000 lives were lost on Galveston Island .
11. The first word spoken from the moon, July 20, 1969, was " Houston ," but the Space Center was actually in Clear Lake City at the time.
12. King Ranch in South Texas is larger than Rhode Island .
13. Tropical Storm Claudette brought a US rainfall record of 43" in 24 hours in and around Alvin in July of 1979.
14. Texas is the only state to enter the US by TREATY, (known as the Constitution of 1845 by the Republic of Texas to enter the Union ) instead of by annexation. This allows the Texas Flag to fly at the same height as the US Flag, and Texas may choose to divide into 5 states.
15. A Live Oak tree near Fulton is estimated to be 1500 years old.
16. Caddo Lake is the only natural lake in the state.
17. Dr Pepper was invented in Waco in 1885. There is no period in Dr Pepper.
18. Texas has had six capital cities:
Washington-on-the Brazos, Harrisburg , Galveston , Velasco, West Columbia, and Austin .
19. The Capitol Dome in Austin is the only dome in the US which is taller than the Capitol Building in Washington , DC
(by 7 feet).
20. The San Jacinto Monument is the tallest free standing monument in the world and it is taller than the Washington Monument .
21. The name ' Texas ' comes from the Hasini Indian word 'tejas' meaning friends. Tejas is not Spanish for Texas .Tejas in Spanish means β€œtiles”
22. The State Mascot is the Armadillo. An interesting bit of trivia about the armadillo is they always have four babies. They have one egg, which splits into four, and they either have four males or four females.
23. The first domed stadium in the US was the Astrodome in Houston .

Cowboy's Ten Commandments posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Farlie , Texas :

(1) Just one God.
(2) Honor yer Ma & Pa.
(3) No telling tales or gossipin'.
(4) Git yourself to Sunday meeting.
(5) Put nothin' before God.
(6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal.
(7) No killin'.
(8) Watch yer mouth.
(9) Don't take what ain't yers.
(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff.

Y'all git all that?
Lord, keep Your arm around my shoulder
and Your hand over my mouth.

Wonderful..😍

Thank you Donna for posting all this PAC information. I’m enjoying seeing them. I appreciate all the encouragement. #2 and I share a mutual love for Santas!

Bluebonnet PAC loves Janet. We adopted her several years ago and look forward to a seminar with her every year. In fact, she is scheduled to be with us for a 3 day seminar next month. Wish her well, we can be a bit of a rowdy crowd but she is a master at keeping us in line. Love these Santas.

#1 is the best!! I am #2 since she was in the local clubs when I joined. The rest is history. She is a wonderful artist that can paint anything!!!!

BTW: This PAC issue was from the year I was president. Thanks for featuring it because a Janet is a very talented & skilled artist/teacher! We are so excited that Janet will conduct a demonstration on painting Santa’s at the Dallas PAG in Nov.

Janet Nelson is the best! Just love her!!

What really amazed me was that she used only mineral oil! I’m sure she still does. She could get good color, and painted quite dry with it!

She lives in Missouri now. Still painting some beautiful hummingbirds and other subjects!

And still a beautiful artist. In Missouri.

She was my teacher while she was living in Leander. But I chat with her frequently, in fact, yesterday.

Very talented artist!

Kay is definitely a Master Artist! Fortunate to go to her home with my friend, Seda, in the summer for several years to paint with her. Such a grand time!!! Love you, Kay!

Wonderful artist that has influenced so many Porcelain painters!

Kay was the first seminar teacher I attended when I was a new painter. She impressed me as she never made me feel that I was in over my head and didn’t know what I was doing. She is, not only a fantastic artist and teacher, but a beautiful, loving person inside and out. Love you Kay.

Beautiful artist, great teacher and lovely person!!!

Absolutely magnificent ❀️❀️❀️

Did beautiful work!

My mentor and friend

Fabulous!

This vase is beautiful. Kay sold this vase to George Kemper, in Marble Falls, he gave it to Betsy for their 50th anniversary, in ‘93 or ‘94. Those that were were familiar with the Highland Lakes PAG, Will reminder Betsy, simply delightful and a gifted painter. (Their son, John, owned the Bluebonet Cafe in Marble Falls).

Also.....Remembering some of the good times together with best friends painting all day long, laughing and sharing painting tips and sometimes crying when sharing life’s stories and troubles. And, so often remembering the ones that used to be with but now are gone.

So true, adapted to current times...

I think the lady that wrote this was a good friend of Betty Poellet.

So true!

This is so true!!
