Dukes & Boots is having a fundraiser to benefit the families that were displaced from the Mark Twain apartments tonight and tomorrow night (July 27 and July 28). There will be a $5 cover at the door. There will be other activities throughout the evening as well. All money will be given to the American Red Cross and earmarked for disbursement to this tragedy only.

I don't think a lot of you noticed, but I haven't been posting many blogs this past few days. I'm sure our Blog Boy wants to shake his finger at me for it.

Daisy Dukes and Cowboy Boots is now collecting items to aid the folks that woke up last Thursday morning without even a change of clothes. To quote Dale Malone "We ask for furniture, kitchen items, clothing toys, pet food, home goods, towels etc... gift cards are great too!"
