Merry Christmas from the Claes4 & Kyle Daily Photo

Merry Christmas 2013 from the Claes4.

Below you will find some photos from our Christmas Adventure this season... in Kyle & Buda, Texas.
We saw a lot of Santas.. :)

Also here's the track listing of our 2013 Claes4 Christmas CD.
Each year we choose 15-20 of our favorite tunes from the past year... burn them onto a CD and hand them out to friends and family in hopes of helping them discover some of the great music this area (and the world) has. For the first time... we've gone digital. So, if you'd like these tunes... click here - link. It will take you to the Dropbox where these tracks reside. 
Just do me a favor. If you like these artists... seek them out. Find them in 2014 and attend a show, buy a CD and shake their hand. The links go to their Facebook page.

I like the way the folks who pruned this tree (located next to the Hays Free Press on Center Street in Kyle, Texas) made it possible for the stop sign to peek through.

Sampson Extension

So... in the Plum Creek neighborhood, it's been talked about for years... The plan has always been to connect Sampson Road with 1626 so folks in Plum Creek would have an additional outlet. I drove by there yesterday. I'm VERY happy to see this is being done.

This will cut about 10 minutes out of most of my trips to the north end of town.

Movember - Call me

Welcome to Movember... the month formerly known as November.
I'm I am the Captain of a Kyle, Texas team raising money and awareness for men's Health issues.

Here's something you see about once a year from me. A face without a goatee or beard. Don't get too used to it.... I'm sprouting a mustache now. For the fourth year in a row, I'm growing an ironic (or is it iconic?) mustache for Movember.

My team page is The Simply Charming Mo's of Kyle, Texas. We are 11 members ( MoBros and MoSistas) as of Movember 1. 
If you'd like to join... just click the link. We'd love to have you.

Our big event this year is a Concert and Silent Auction to be held at Milt's Pit BBQ on Movember 23.
Here's the Facebook event page with more updates: link

Movember 1 - Clean Shaven.
I'll keep you updated this month about the progress of my mustache. Grow on.
