Record Breaking TCF

After a whirlwind pandemic year, the 2021 Texas Crab Festival came back with a phenomenal, record breaking turnout. The devastating cancellation of the TCF from last year gave way to a bigger and better festival this year. The weather conditions were favorable with breezy winds and bright skies.

Dear Mom,
There have been 22 Mother’s Days since you passed away. I think of you and how we seemed to often disagree. You knew that I was definitely a “Daddy’s Girl”. He could do no wrong in my eyes, but you and I could tangle over such little events. I do not think that I ever really, really thanked you for all the good things that you did for me, and the things

To Kill A Mockingbird
