What's Cookin' in Canadian | Green Shrimp Curry

Body
My sister and I love Thai food, and she whipped up this delicious curry in under 30 minutes! The amount of green curry paste will determine the heat index. We like it spicy and went with 3 tablespoons. This dish can be made with shrimp, chicken, or just loads of vegetables. Kaffir lime leaves, that add much to this dish, can be purchased online.

River Valley Pioneer Museum | Canadian, Texas

Body
I want to give many thanks to the Canadian Church of Christ for designating volunteers to help clean and condition our saddles on display. Larry Dyess’ merry band of volunteers did an outstanding job and was very pleasant to visit with. The museum’s saddles represent local works of art (Reid Errington, saddle maker) and rodeo achievements (Clinton Hill with bronc and bareback riding). Our oldest saddles date back to the early 1900s from Wiley Wright and Laura Todd Nix (side saddle). Now, I am not a country girl, so I never learned proper saddle care; nor was saddle care taught in my museum studies courses. So, having real cowboys help with the saddles is much appreciated.

Joann Billings celebrates Independence Day

Body
As Joann Billings wakes up in her home in Canadian, she wonders what the day will bring. She might spend the morning watering her vegetable garden; make some progress on her latest needlepoint, a portrait of wildflowers in a meadow; and spend some time playing with her West Highland Terrier, Allie. At some point, several of her grandchildren will drift in her front door, wondering if there’s any of Ma’s homemade snacks on hand. In the afternoon, she will work on sewing clothing protectors for the residents at the Edward Abraham Nursing Home.
