Nothing says “home in Texas” like the annual Katy Rice Harvest Festival. No one at Katy High School drove a tractor to school (that I know of), but it would be safe to say this is a community that identifies strongly with its harvesting roots. Or, you know, a good leafy-camo purse. Anyone? Anyone?? Or, forget blending in and go for intimidation with this nice fox-head purse.
Katy trivia: The Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad Company, or K-T Railroad, had a depot here. So yes, the name of the town is derived (integrated?) from an abbreviation. This is a good place to come home to. Despite the sudden appearance of propane tanks-turned-jack-o-lanterns. This is a new development.
This lady at the Lone Star Loom Room was pulling yarn she dyed at home and had a loom in the process of knitting scarves. My great-grandmother had a huge loom, promised to my mother. This got Mum thinking about it again. Wouldn’t that be a cool family hobby? Maybe? If we could figure out how to work it, then loom each other heirloom (ha ha!) blankets and stuff??
