Roy Faubion is a retired radio broadcaster, and he has written a number of columns for newspapers throughout his professional career.

Pretty Pictures

Posted by mcm0704 on January 12, 2011 |

My Liitle Barn Instead of doing one of my usual rants about something, I thought I would just share some pictures I took this morning. Texas has some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets that I have ever seen, and this morning was a great one. I’m glad my animals woke me up in […]

Posted by mcm0704 on June 9, 2009 |
