Create something fun, beautiful
AUSTIN - While the weather is finally beginning to warm up a little here in Central Texas, I still have a few more Traveling Soldier stories I want to cover that take place indoors before I get back outside. One of those places is Cafe Monet in Austin. This idea has taken off in the last few years, along with the popular idea of painting studios with step-by-step instructions and fun.

Austin Fly Girls of WWII Fly Girls of WWII – a new exhibit that runs until Feb. 1 at the Bullock Texas State History Museum – tells the stories of the U.S. servicewomen known to history as WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots) who answered the call to duty in World War II. WASP received their military training in Sweetwater, and after earning their silver wings, they were deployed to 120 bases across the United States.
