Wow! What a show! It was definitely an experience, and I am so glad I went. The event was sold out. I would also say that 85 percent of the people attending were Winter Texans. Bill, of B&S Kites, who put on the show, went through the northern states to see who was at the event. I think Minnesota was the most represented, although there were people from Washington, Nebraska, Illinois, and several other states including Canada. The event opened up with an invocation before a presentation was done for the Canada National Anthem and then the US National Anthem. Once those were done, the event was in full swing. These kite fliers had no wind to hoist up their fliers, they used dance and momentum to fly their kites inside the building. It was amazing how they twisted around, jerked their arms, and maneuvered their kites to the ohhhs and ahhhs of the crowd.

Flood Coverage Available Call or Come See Us 956-464-2886 The Way We Were Now… although it was written 35 years ago, I think there might still be some that can relate to what will be shared here this week. We think about all the changes that have happened in the past 35 years with the paper, but as we get older, we also know things change all around us. I do think I need to find a more updated version in the next few years. Like in a previous throwback when we talked about computers. Things are ever evolving around us. We can’t stop it, but sometimes we do wish for those simpler times. This was originally published in the February 12, 1988, issue of the Winter Texan Times. “I have been asked for this bit of humor which has been making the rounds the last couple of years, to be put in the paper. This has been read at a number of Golden Wedding anniversary celebrations – Virginia Sunderman. We were before Television, before Penicillin, the Pill. Polio Shots, Antibiotics, and Frisbees. Before Frozen Food, Nylon, Dacron, Xerox, and Kinsey. We were before Radar, Fluorescent Lights, Credit Cards and Ballpoint Pens. For us, time sharing meant Togetherness, not Computers. A Chip meant a piece of wood. Hardware meant hardware and Software wasn’t even a word. In those days, Bunnies were small Rabbits, and Rabbits were not Volkswagens! We were before Batman, Rudolph the Reindeer and Snoopy, before DDT and Vitamin Pills, Vodka (in the United States) and the White Wine craze, Disposable Diapers, Jeeps and the Jefferson Nickel. Before Scotch Tape, the Automatic Shift and Lincoln Continentals. When we were in College, Pizzas, Cheerios, Frozen Orange Juice, Instant Coffee and McDonald’s were unheard of. We thought Fast Food was what you ate during Lent! We were before FM Radio, Tape Recorders, Electric Typewriters, Word Processors, Muzak, Electric Music and Disco Dancing. We were before Panty Hose and Drip Dry Clothes, before Ice Makers and Electric Dishwashers, Clothes Dryers, Freezers and Electric Blankets, Before men wore long Hair and Earrings and women wore Tuxedos. We got married first and lived together afterward. How quaint can you be? In our day, cigarette smoking was fashionable and Grass was mowed! Coke was something you drank and Pot was something you cooked in. We were before Coin Wedding Machines, Jet Planes, Helicopters and Insterstate Highways. In those days Winter Texan Times: Looking back 35 years See LOOKING BACK pg. 23 Downtown Mission, Conway Ave.

Penilla EDGE OF YOUR SEAT EXCITEMENT OLÉ! MHM’s 17th Annual Quilt Show is a success According to Vernon Weckbacher, Mission Historical Museum’s archivist, the 17th annual MHM’s Quilt Show was a success. Although there were fewer quilts than in past years, they each had a distinctive character with none resembling the others. During the annual “Turning of the Quilts,” presented by Nancy Lenz, a local quilting expert, most of the quilts presented were antiques. First, she presented a hand-stitched quilt bought at a rummage sale for $15. “Obviously the family did not appreciate all of the hours of hand-stitching that went into the making of the quilt,” she said. She considers it a treasure. The second quilt, “Twinkle Stars,” was made by Audry Stewart in 2020 as part of a challenge organized by the Sew Sew Sisters of Alamo. The group exchanged quilt strips with each other to make the one and three-fourths half square triangles in the design. But Stewart also used scraps from her grandmother and great grandmother’s scrap bags. The next three quilts shown were owned by Catherine Raftery. They were made by Etta McKindrey, who was a farmer’s wife and the mother of 10 children. Born in 1873, she died in 1974; she quilted most of her adult life and was still quilting when she turned 100 years old. At the time, most quilts were made from old shirts and dresses and hers were no exception. One quilt, featuring different sizes of rectangles and squares, looked as if it were made entirely of material from old men’s shirts. The colors were blue green and brown, which would have been appropriate for men’s shirts at the time. Another had striped blocks in different colors that may have come from pajama prints. The quilts were neatly made. Lenz said the ladies got together in groups to quilt. If one lady did not do a neat enough job, the others would make her take the quilt apart and redo it, until it was neat enough to pass their inspection! Her third quilt was a handstitched pinwheel design made of one-half inch squares and triangles. Lenz dated the materials used in the quilts back to the 1940’s and 1950’s. The next quilt Lenz displayed came from China. Called the Mariners’ Star, the blue and white quilt featured a variety of Dresden plates and pitchers. Lenz said when China entered the international quilt market, its quilts were made by women and children working in sweat shops for as little as one dollar a day to make the quilts. Catherine Raftery, who owns the quilt, bought it at the Jackson Street Market in Harlingen for $12, but would have paid much more. The last quilt in the “Turning of the Quilts” belonged to Nancy Logan. It was an antique crazy quilt made in the 1800’s by her great aunt, who taught quilting to ladies in her church. The quilt featured bright and colorful materials that were sewn onto a flannel blanket and had a lily-ofthe-Valley embroidered on one edge. Lenz said that meant the quilt was dedicated to someone who died by the quilter. Winners were announced and ribbons passed out in the two categories. In wall hangings, third place winner was Cheryl Panter with “Gnome for the Holidays.” Second place went to Kathy Vogel with “Oh Come.” First place for wall hangings went to Carrol Moering for “Twelve Days of Christmas.” In bed quilts third place went to Charlotte Vescova for “Angels Lost but Found.” Audry Stewart won second place for “Sweet Baby Kensley,” made for a new great niece. First place and Best of Show went to Catherine Raftery for “Elm Creek.” A native of Ireland, Raftery took up quilting eight years ago when she came to the United States. The large quilt featured a number of designs from buildings in New York City to log cabins with pinwheels and other designs.

FEBRUARY 8, 2023 6 WINTER TEXAN TIMES VSA lineup includes Ron Moshier Ron Moshier has been quite a hit in the Rio Grande Valley. When we asked the activity directors for nominees on the VSA Ballot, Ron Moshier’s name came to many as we asked for feedback. To the delight of Winter Texans throughout the Valley, he will be performing at the 2023 Valley Star Awards on Wednesday, February 15. He performs dances and shows throughout the RGV. He performs 60’s to current country, classic country, classic rock and he also does polka and waltzes. He has had a passion for music since he was eight years old. He began his music career with accordion lessons and started his first band at the age of 13. His desire to perform for audiences quickly grew along with his repertoire and song catalog. He also plays the keyboard and, of course, sings, bringing a full band sound in a one-man band. He began touring at the age of 25, opening for amazing artists like Tammy Wynette, Chubby Checker, Eddie Rabbit, Pam Tillis, Gene Watson, and many other talented entertainers. Moshier grew up in Big Lake, Minnesota surrounded by a loving family and friends that encouraged him in his music career. He has since made Texas his home for more than 30 years. Moshier says his love and passion continues to this day to make audiences of all ages get up and dance like nobody’s watching. “Making people happy, makes me happy,” said Moshier. And that’s what you’ll see at every performance. 1 to 4 p.m. at Mission Bell Resort, 1711 E. Bus. 83. Tickets are $15 per person, and $12.50 for groups of 10 or more.

University Dr, Edinburg, TX 78539 UTRGV PERFORMING ARTS CENTER + PERFORMANCES Nu-Blu joins VSA lineup Nu-Blu has been visiting the Valley for a few years now, but this year, they are celebrating their 20th year entertaining. During their 20 years, they have released several Top Ten Billboard albums, have destination tours, and have moved into the role of bringing the roots of Americana music to the masses. North-Carolina based Nu-Blu has quickly established themselves as one of the top acoustic acts in the music industry, delivering a set of songs that range from the melancholy to the exuberant, and at every step they prove they’ve got a knack for finding their way in the deeper parts of you. They’ve turned many heads, garnering major headlines with their George Jones inspired tribute single “Jesus and Jones.” The award-winning band has also made appearances on Fox news, while also having their music featured on CBS “Sunday Morning.” The heart and soul of Nu-Blu is the husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn’s caramel-coated soprano is one of the band’s defining traits. Daniel is the group’s backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and backing vocalist who also handles band management. Austin Hefflefinger on banjo and Justin Harrison on mandolin round out the quartet’s warm, layered, Appalachian sound. Together, they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that can’t be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road. When not entertaining, Carolyn and Daniel host Bluegrass Ridge, an internationally syndicated tv show that airs weekly on seven networks and 85 local affiliate stations from New York to Hawaii and in five countries. As cohosts of the show, it’s their goal to bring an American musical form into as many homes as possible. “It’s a true history of the United States and continues to tell the tales of those that live and love the music,” they say about the show and the music they love. Through their shows, they bring inspiring music to you, as well as put an Americana roots twist on some wellknown songs. Their passion for the music and its history shows on stage as they perform originals and other hits. You can catch them at this year’s Valley Star Awards that will be held on Wednesday, February 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. You can buy tickets online at, come by the Winter Texan Times office at 1217 N. Conway in Mission, or at the Mission Bell/Trade Winds activities office off Stewart Rd. and Business 83 in Mission. For more information, call the Winter Texan Times office at (956) 580-7800. Nu-Blu
