Check out the improvised ice pack on Shannon’s knee. It’s more than an ice pack… it’s a fashion statement. No? Needless to say she is not to pleased about the whole thing. Join us in wishing her a speedy recovery. Thanks, Chuck

Soup’s on! Oklahoma City couple dish out samples, win over customers
Here’s a tip for those on a budget: Wander through the Texas Room in the Amon G. Carter Jr. exhibits hall, and look for a nice couple from Oklahoma City. Wilda and Gary Harrison are regulars here, and they specialize in selling Company’s Comin’ soups and casseroles. The items are roughly $9 each, but Gary Harrison is happy to provide passers-by with as many free samples as they like.
On a recent visit, he offered a visitor no less than seven one-ounce servings of fare such as Grandpa Bo’s Baked Potato Soup, Old Mexico Cheese Soup and King Ranch Casserole.
All the soup and casserole mixes are made at the company’s headquarters in Hearne, just north of Bryan/College Station. It’s a family operation, and the Harrison’s are distance cousins – or, as Wilda Harrison says, “the gypsies of the family, who do all the traveling.”
As for the free samples, Wilda Harrison says it boosts sales tremendously.
“People like to taste what they’re buying,” she said. “Some people do make a meal of it, and that’s just fine.”

Gladys & I are both addicted. My husband thinks its crazy. I love watching it but I have never claimed that it was quality tv. I just don’t know who’s going to be voted out tonight? And then who is going to win HOH? According to the spoilers the HOH is endurance competition so who knows who will win that. I would have never thought the mean girl Aaryn would have been HOH this week. Gladys & I are always interested in all conversations regarding Big Brother even though they might sound stupid. So, if you have any comments to make let us know.
