I’m running a little late, but I did want to say “Congratulations” to all of our 2019 graduates. What a wonderful time in your life. 

If you were watching Fox News this past week, you may have seen that our little town of Albany, Texas landed a place on their broadcast. 

I hope all of you had a nice spring break last week. At least we got a few days of pretty weather. I know all the parents were glad to see the sunshine.


It does seem like you see signs everywhere these days. A lot of these quotes are on T shirts. I have a Sign Wall in my den. Some of the signs are spiritual and some are just for fun.  


I know that all parents and grandparents have heard “that question” from your kids and grandkids a million times. I know I have. 

Jeff and Ricia Pleasant of Albany are pleased to announce the engagement and upcoming wedding of their son, Ryan Jeffrey Pleasant to Georgi Dee Hannah, daughter of Don and Melanie Hannah and Mindy
