Potbelly Sandwich Shop Opens in Conroe

I'm always looking for somewhere new to post about.  Today the Potbelly Sandwich Shop opens in Conroe at 1240 N. Loop West.  Along with sandwiches it's exciting to mention that they will be serving hand-dipped milkshakes!  The salads will be made to order. Check out their full menu by clicking http://www.potbelly.com/Food/OurMenu.aspx?subPage=Sandwiches

Sunday's edition of the Courier also reports that this location will host live, local music. Interested performers should contact the shop manager to apply and to schedule an audition.  I'm curious to know when music is scheduled.  This will be something to check out!

Let me know what you think about the new sandwich shop in Conroe.

Montgomery County Flood Maps

Have you checked out the current floodplain maps for our county?  Simply follow the following link


The link will ask you to agree to their policy.  Then a new window opens and simply type in your address to run a search.  The shaded areas have a legend in the bottom right corner of the window.

Please note:  FEMA sets the rates for flood insurance.  Be sure to consult with your homeowners insurance agent to confirm and determine the area which area your property is appearing.

I hope this helps,

Ruidoso, New Mexico

Ruidoso, a place where families and friends have often congregated.  Personally my family has frequented Ruidoso.  You see in the late 80's we were handed a key to a hide away and told "This is your inheritance."  Some of our fondest memories were formed in the 3 bedroom hideaway.  Games around the table, children playing and throwing army men over the balcony all of this combined brought hours of laughter.  Memories to treasure for a lifetime were created in those formative years of my children.

Time progressed and the matriarch of the family sold, bought, and repeated the cycle again.  After all that is what people in real estate do ... always eyeing the other properties.  The last property my husband's father owned is: 

146 Willie Horton Drive
Ruidoso, New Mexico  88345

Ruidoso has always been a quiet retreat.  Midtown shopping is available and truly with every trip allowances were always made so we could bring home a mountain treasure.  I might add that it seems everything including restaurants will be closed earlier than the big city life.  So if you are like me and believe in eating out when at your vacation hideaway be prepared to eat early or have the snacks stocked to last till morning.

Last May we made one of the more depressing trips into Ruidoso.  The realization that our parents are not with us on this earth forever sank in.  As we approached Ruidoso, the formation of the Mountains came into eyesight.  It's always breathtaking to view and reinforces Thankfulness to my God and Creator of such wonders.  On the other hand, this particular time memories flooded my mind, realization sunk in and as tears formed in my eyes I fought breaking into sobs.  It was a cloudy rainy afternoon and in order to overcome my emotions I shot one picture after another.  The following YouTube link is just a few of the snapshots my telephone helped to capture:
The Road to Ruidoso
