Welcome to Victoria, This Used to Be a …

I was scrolling through my social feeds last week and I came across a social post that got me reminiscing. Check out the original post that was posted thanks to a Facebook post by Andrew Schiavone below. I mean, we had only one Blockbuster but other than that this meme is absolutely true. So I reached out on social media for your input. Check out this list that will bring back so many memories. Of course, there are so many that we can continue to add to this list. However, some of these photo assets are hard to find. So if you have a 'throwback' picture from Victoria. Send them my way at

Check out the Biggest Lottery Wins in the Victoria Area

I always love following big lottery wins. What tickets the was and where was it sold. Let us start out by saying that it's another ticket not sold in Victoria. It's also a win that goes against my theory of big jackpot tickets being sold at inconspicuous stores. This ticket was a $2 million dollar jackpot winner off of the $30 Premier Cash ticket. It was sold in Sweetwater, Texas at Murphy USA!

What is “tamarind”?

Another Friday, and I sort of think it’s one of those “TGIF” Fridays! The week has been fairly busy as Tuesday; I started my day with our monthly Auxiliary meeting and then went to work in the gift shop, as the lady who usually has morning shift is not able to do so at this time. The morning was busy, but the afternoon was pretty slow, so I was glad when 5:00 p.m. came around and I could go home. Wednesday was a Doctor’s appointment and everything was fine, Thursday the blood bank was there and I was able to donate. On Friday, I spent a good part of the day at the Toyota place in Victoria as it was time to have maintenance done on my car. Everything went well until the lady told me that the bulb I needed in my tail-light wouldn’t be available for five days. I made a quick phone call to my neighbor who works on cars and he had a bulb! I still can’t understand why it would take them five days to get a new one! Now, my car is ready for the road trip my daughter, my sister and I are taking this weekend. My sister-in-law recently celebrated a milestone birthday and my brother is having a family party for all of us. They live in north Texas so it is a fairly long drive, not anything like the ten-hour trip of a few weeks ago. I am excited as I will get to see my nieces and nephews and their families.

Cheeto Puff the Cat is Very Tolerant

Occurred on May 23, 2022 / Victoria, Texas, USA Info from Licensor: This video is of my 7-year-old daughter, Sadie. I’m a teacher and when I got home from work I did a double-take because I couldn’t tell what she was swinging at first. Once I realized it was Cheeto Puff I got my phone to show my family. I FaceTimed my husband right after the video and he busted out laughing. I was also able to FaceTime my sister. She then, put our white cat Stellaluna on it. I also have a video of that on my Tiktok account. She puts him on the swing regularly now. Even swings with him.
