“Do I need to probate my mom’s estate in order to receive the monies left in that account?”

    Question:  My mother recently passed away.  She didn’t really have any property.  She didn’t live in a house that she owned and she didn’t have a car.  All she had was a checking account where her Social Security check went each month.  I think I remember that she told me that I was a beneficiary to that checking account.  Do I need to probate my mom’s estate in order to receive the monies left in that account?  She was able to live on less than her monthly income so I believe that the account has a significant amount of money in it.

     Traveling across the great state of Texas brings back special memories for everyone.  Many of those memories include stopping off at one of the roadside parks and picnic areas, pulling out the picnic basket and cozying up to a picnic table for a sandwich and a break from travel.  The roadside parks offered a chance to take a look at a roadmap, throw out the trash and walk the dog.  Sadly, those memories are less likely to become the memories of today’s children as many of the roadside parks and picnic areas will close in Texas.

Some Assembly Required

     I love that phrase.  We got a new shed in our backyard, which required MUCH more than “some” assembly. In fact, after two full days of reading and following each step, we wondered if it would have been smarter to have it “put together” by the construction crew at Sears.  The first day, we were fighting the Panhandle wind, and the second, a day too cold for the middle of May.  By evening the door was able to be shut, and we were amazed that we had used every puzzle piece in the box!

Can I carry a handgun in my vehicle?

By ROBIN SCOTT

    Question:  Can you solve an argument between my mother and me?  She was concerned that I could be arrested for unlawfully carrying a weapon because I travel with a handgun in my vehicle.  I believe that the law changed to allow a person to carry a handgun in their own vehicle.
