“Having fun is not a diversion from a successful life; it is the pathway to it.”

Martha N. Beck

A new County Line eEdition flip book came out a few days ago full of interesting people, fun things to do, and celebrations of spring. Click on the image at the bottom of this newsletter to dive in.

We’re sharing a few articles here with long lists of fun and meaningful things to do over the next couple of months so get out your planners and start filling in those dates.

March kicks off Women’s History Month and although we make it a point to celebrate the women of this region throughout the year, others are making a special time of it so we’ll be capturing some of that.

As always, we would love to hear from you. Our publications are for and about you and knowing what direction we go next depends a lot on what you’d like to see. I would appreciate your feedback via email at pa.geddie@countylinemagazine.com. — P.A. Geddie

Spring Forward With Good Things To Do

Spring in the Upper East Side of Texas provides a beautiful backdrop of wildflowers and other floral presentations, wide-open skies, and nature at its best. The big thing going on this year is the rare eclipse happening April 8 with visitors coming from all over the world for a front-row seat in this prime region. Visitors should make plans early and if there’s no more room “in the house” consider exploring the area any other time of the year. For a list of some of the activities going on, see this ARTICLE in County Line eMagazine.

There’s so much more going on with festivals, motorized barstool races, museum exhibitions, wine swirls, and beautiful flower trails. READ MORE

Guy Clark Fans Are Gonna Love This

A new Guy Clark album releases this week on March 8. Truly Handmade Volume 1 is a collection of the late Guy Clark’s solo acoustic demos, which reveal the early forms of several of his classics including “L.A. Freeway,” “Let Him Roll,” and “Lone Star Hotel.” Other songs are ones that were left “on the cutting-room floor.” Nearly half the songs on Truly Handmade are new to even longtime fans. READ MORE about other things happening to keep the legacy of Guy Clark alive.
