Millsap Matters

(Continued)

As previously mentioned there is going to be a new restaurant and grocery store on Highway 180 West at the blinking Cool lights. The owner of the Blue Windmill is Willia Holley, a Whitt resident. A widow, she moved to the area to be close to family and is the former owner of a very successful cafe in Comstock, TX. She has some great ideas and plans to open the first week in March. 

In the beginning, the owner will be serving hamburgers and have a cold case with milk and eggs, plus bread for sale. As she progresses there will be a full menu with fish Friday and a wild plate, which will include seasonal meats like quail. The hours will be 6 a.m.-6 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday. A self-described mover and shaker, Willia is excited about meeting the community and getting the business started. She welcomes everyone to come by and visit her and enjoy a bite.

Here's one of the neatest things I've seen in a while; down at Walden's Farm and Ranch Supply (Millsap) they have a hen house. On the grounds is a wooden building with a bright yellow sign that welcomes everyone to the Hen House. Inside is tub after tub of all kinds of baby chicks, with signs all around with info about the various breeds. 

Here's the best part – there's a 3-foot stuffed hen, with real feathers, standing on a shelf looking down on all the offspring. Someone put a lot of time and effort into this project and it has drawn much attention.

In conjunction with the chicks the business will be holding Chicken Seminars. The Weatherford store, 2551 South Main St., will have their event on March 9, 10 a.m. The Millsap location on Fairview Road will host March 23 at 10 a.m. Each household is eligible to get two free chicks for attending the seminars which teach "family flock nutrition and management."
