Texas Country Reporter Trio
Saturday February 21, 2009
Pictured left to right, Texas State Artist Finalist, Virginia Vaughan of Round Rock; Jody Powers, owner of Zamykal Gourmet Kolaches in Calvert; and Sonny Moss, owner of Mud Creek Pottery in Calvert.
All three are alumni of the television program, "Texas Country Reporter". They are shown in Mud Creek Pottery on Main Street in Calvert last Saturday.
Moss was featured on the program in 1997. Vaughan was shown going back to paint, one last day, on her family farm after it had been sold, last spring. And Powers was shown in her shop on the weekend of February 21 and 22. The programs can be seen in reruns, and DVDs can be purchased through the "Texas Country Reporter" website.
Vaughan was in Calvert to conduct a Plein Aire Painting Workshop on Saturday.
Take a look at Kerrie Kerns' blog, Plein Texas, http://pleintexas.blogspot.com/ to read more about the Plein Aire Painting Workshop in Calvert last weekend. She has some pictures that I didn't get.
Glad you got to come, Kerrie! And thanks for sharing your pictures and experiences.
We're planning on doing another one in October.
I'll add my pictures separately. Meanwhile, they can be seen at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BrazosValley_Sketchers .
I was shocked to hear that Wendy Richard died. She was the pretty girl with the Cockney accent on "Are You Being Served. She was also Pauline Fowler on "EastEnders" for over 21 years. In her younger photos, she looked like one of the Mod girls or the James Bond girls. I appreciated the more recent photos that showed her with her beloved Cairn Terriers. It was nice to see clips of tributes to her and one that showed her getting married before her death from cancer. I thought that we would miss her on "EastEnders" when she quit the program. And I hoped that she would go on to do some more interesting projects. I had not heard that she was ill. I guess I will watch "EastEnders", knowing that "Pauline" is really gone, although we haven't reached the part where she left the show through Houston PBS.
