Fuzzy baby memories
I really enjoyed reading your Buzz Baby column in January’s Buzz Magazine [Buzz Baby – Chapter One: Pregnancy, by Annie Blaylock McQueen]. The article brought back fond (if fuzzy) memories of my own three kids as babies! I know how important it was for me to connect with other young moms during that time to share tips, funny stories, and occasionally just vent. I think your column will provide that connection with so many moms in the area. And congratulations on your new bundles of joy!

We will miss you, Jane
I want to give a shout out to [Bellaire parks and recreation director] Jane Dembski on her retirement: Jane, you’ve been synonymous with Bellaire parks for so long and have done so much for our parks and residents, it’s difficult to imagine Bellaire without you. I’m going to miss the positive attitude and tireless energy you brought to making our parks and recreation activities better every year!
West U fantasy football, anyone?
I’ve enjoyed the Buzz stories in the last few months on the women’s fantasy-football league [Drafting Divas: Gal pals find fun in fantasy football, by Cathy Gordon, October 2014] and The Bachelor fantasy league [Bachelor Fantasy Football: Reality-TV romance turns happy-hour sport, by Chelsea Hanson, January 2015]. The Buzz articles helped provoke a thought about a different kind of fantasy league.
Our tri-coastal family was here for Thanksgiving. One grandchild is a baseball fan of major proportions – a Yankee fan in a Red Sox household and the only player in his Little League still swinging a wooden bat. With the Astros now in the American League, and having played a quarter century of fantasy baseball at the Houston Chronicle, I thought that 8-year-old Charlie and I could make a good team if we found the right fantasy league.
I thought it might be fun to find a group of West U area grandparents who want to stay mentally sharp while sharing a passion for our national pastime with their grandchildren. Anyone interested in forming an American League-only “Grandkids Fantasy League” can contact me at [email protected].
Delightful place to visit
I read your article (by Cheryl Ursin) about the Brookwood Community [Brookwood Community: Where there’s opportunity for all, November 2014], and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I have visited the Brookwood Community several times; I have eaten in the cafe, shopped in the store, and been on a tour of the facility. Brookwood is truly a wonderful example of what great things can be accomplished when people come together with a vision and determination; they really have made a community, where all of the “citizens” are treated with such caring and compassion, and they know that they really belong and that they have important contributions to make. Thank you for publishing your article so that more people may get the opportunity to experience the wonderful place that is Brookwood.
Diane’s family is happy
The article [Brookwood Community: Where there’s opportunity for all, November 2014] is just terrific. And the cover photo ain’t too shabby either! You did a beautiful job. Our family thanks you.
