That's why you're seeing so many gals out with their fellow hunting widows enjoying dinners, movies or charity benefits like last week's Junior League Christmas Affair preview party. And that's where we heard our favorite story of the hunting season to date. From Chuck Nash with wife Elizabeth of San Marcos.

Then they hobbled the critters, dragged them to trucks, loaded them on, transported them to an airplane and flew them to West Texas. There they were set free in the Baylor and Van Horn mountains! And Chuck will tell you he preferred this kind of hunt to the bang-bang-it's-dead-hang-its-head -on-your-wall variety. The Big Apple Comes to Austin ...

Anybody who has ever ridden in a horse-drawn carriage through a snow-blanketed Central Park, shopped Fifth Avenue bedecked with garlands of evergreens and sipped hot chocolate and nibbled chestnuts watching the skaters at Rockefeller Plaza would have loved the Junior League of Austin's Christmas Affair last week.

The Junior League under president Cindy Kozmetsky, wife of Greg Kozmetsky, expects to clear more than $300,000 that's earmarked for its community service projects that include the Huntington Art Gallery and the Mary Lee Foundation. The annual event officially (at least in our mind) kicks off the Austin holiday shopping season.
