  1. Oooh, yeah, the Axiom! My husband played there with Necrotic Void! Numbers, hanging out at KPFT during Musical Curfew with Jay Lee, meeting Oingo Boingo in the parking lot at the Tower before Elfman became Danny Hollywood, the Island, dancing on the roof above the marquee at the River Oaks Theater staff party, going to Marfreless and not seeing a baby stroller....
  2. Since I did a double post by accident, let me preceed with a category that deserves its own space - Johnny Goudie & Panjandrum. I have a picture of me at a party with him hugging me and he's in a pair of very low-pulled boxers....(slaps self)
  3. The two Weingarten's from my childhood were the Bellaire location on Bissonnet (now a Randall's) and the Dunlavy/West Alabama one (now a Fiesta). We always bought Christmas trees at the Dunlavy one and I remember the wire-covered table warmed by light bulbs that housed dyed Easter chicks. My mom also got our cards for "Let's Go To The Races" there and Big Bonus stamps. My father (commercial interior designer) also had the pleasure of working with Joe Weingarten and said he was a true gentleman; very civic-minded and cognizant of what the people of Houston thought.
  4. I think HCB Electric is essentially Harry and his wife. I had to call twice, but they were so highly recommended (and worth it!) that I kept at it.
  5. Longhorn Drain - David Kubacek. 281-304-0265 office 281-235-7862 cell. Quick and neat.
  6. If anyone goes to Yard House, ask for Fred. Took some clients there and thought "Oh great, a college kid" when we got him. Mea Culpa. Very attentive, delivered everything perfectly and warned me about my order to fit my vegetarian tastes.
  7. Yes! HCB Electric - Harry is the greatest! Straightened out my bizarre shadetree electrician issues in a day. Specializes in older homes. http://www.hcbelectric.com/
  8. My husband just sent me an e-mail - he died at home last night.
  9. I remember him. His mom (nicknamed Pee Wee) lived in Brownsville and my mother would always meet up with her when we went to visit my grandparents. Very nice and funny man. Yes, he liked guys, but that's no reason for him to be brutally murdered.
  10. Oh, no - that first house has got to be 2615 Riverside. One of my sister's two best friends at Lamar in the 60's lived there. I remember the huge entrance hall. How sad.
  11. Crazy! Was it ever watertight tht you know? That's what always got me about the idea of the shelters in Houston - what if one of our monsoons hit while everyone was supposed to be hiding?
  12. ROFL!! You beat me to it, musicman!
  13. Second round of rain in Oak Forest today. Our resident cardinals are thrilled and chirping merrily
  14. My neighbor had threatened to do the naked Hokey Pokey (Brave Combo version) in the yard if it didn't rain today. Guess even the fates have their endurance limits.
