We all know it is hot in East Texas-especially during the Dog Days of
Summer-but let's admit that this year has been pretty nice-no 100+ days
yet and even a cool front coming through in the middle of July!!
Toward the end of July and going into August-believe it or not-there
is alot of "getting ready" for back to school!!
And, of course, last minute get aways-before school begins-
thus there are not a whole lot of special events in the area-
the blog I am posting will give you dates for the next two -Canton First Monday weekends-some of the events we know of through the middle of
September-and then, as we usually do in this blog-features of some of the places in the area that you may want to visit when you stay at The Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast.
This is always fun!
