In 1956, the owners of Cedar Hill Roller Rink stuck a sky-blue sign on the edge of Main Street. With only the word "Skating" displayed in retro block lettering, the sign called out to travelers, urging them to stop inside for classic four-wheeled entertainment. Today, the rink's hardwood surface provides smooth gliding after five decades upkeep, upbeat music, and upstanding gentlemen who know how to ask a gal to dance despite having untimely sweaty palms.
In a world of uncomfortable unmentionables, Fabyoulous Fit's owners Shanee Charles and Sheliah Melfah bolster women's curve confidence with fashionable and expertly fit brassieres, shapewear, and more.

Available bra brands include Wacoal, Fantasie, and Panache ($30–$85), with shapewear ($20–$65), corsets ($45), and panties ($3.50) also vying for a spot on the undergarment dance card.

Somewhere in Oregon every November, a flatbed truck trundles down the lone dirt road past row upon row of fir trees. Every mile or so, one of a team of winter-weather lumberjacks jumps down from the cab of the truck and gets to work cutting and piling eight-foot firs. That's when a duo of choppers circles the man-made forest, air-lifting each tree and dropping them off near the truck where they're bundled and loaded for the long drive back to Texas.
For the Bell and Lane families, this annual excursion is a Christmas tradition. For 12 years, the two families have made the trek out to the Pacific Northwest. There, they set to work harvesting Douglas, Frasier, Grand, and Noble Firs in an effort to outfit homes with yuletide cheer and reduce the number of hiding places for D. B. Cooper.

Assured Self Storage has anything and everything necessary to safely store supplies for the short or long term. Most facilities boast climate-controlled storage spaces within larger fenced-in facilities, complete with key-coded gates, surveillance cameras, crocodile moats, and door alarms to protect your goods from vengeful ex-roommates and hopelessly lost apartment dwellers. The individual storage rooms, like summer romances, are available in month-to-month leases and range from the closet-sized 5'x5' unit ($34) to the expansive 10'x30' space ($189), which rivals a two-car garage in roominess and number of power tools.
