  1. Well it's been awhile since I've been here, but it's great to know that there are other people that remember a good thing! Peace, Jules
  2. We were told during the 70's that Elvis was staying at the Royal Coach Inn and playing at the Houston Arena. We were members of the swimming pool club at the Royal Coach Inn and that day (date unknown) we were not allowed to swim because Elvis was there. Not much, but I hope it helps! Peace, Jules
  3. During the 70's my parents bought our family annual swimming pool memberships at the Royal Coach Inn. This continued for years. We brought family and friends there to play Marco Polo or whatever. The signs posted there said "no cut-offs" due to filter clogging, lol. We entered through a specific back door to enter the pool area. We were informed by posted signs if a famous person was staying there and we were not allowed there to swim that day(s). Elvis, The Osmonds, and more stars stayed there in order to play/act at the Houston Arena Theatre (down the street). I would love it if someone out there had some pics of the Royal Coach Inn, especially the pool area. Is anybody out there (no Pink Floyd intended)? Any information would be great! Thanks, Jules
  4. Don't forget the Sharpstown Drive-In Theater (near Bellaire Blvd. & Hillcroft), now an apartment complex.
  5. I experienced my first horse ride there. I remember a big red barn there too. I'll look for some pics on this. Thanks for the memory blast! Peace, EnviroMain And what was the name of the old stables on Westheimer (west side)? I rode a couple of times out there too sometime in the 70's. Does anyone have a picture of that?
  6. Julie MainLived on the corner of Neff and Larkwood for what seemed like forever at the time.Is this Carolyn Wilhelm? This is Julie Main, Environmental Scientist. Who is this???? Yes, I played BB in high school too. Had a personal reunion with Dawn Simmons, Stacey Wilbanks, Becca Grassl, Julie Murphy, Lisa Baum and more a few years back. It was very nice. Becca is talking about putting another customized reunion together again. Peace, JAM
  7. The only Beer Barn I know of was a drive through liquor store located on Richman in Sharl]pstown. But I did find this, even though it's not too helpful: http://www.noplacebuttexas.com/george/geohou.htm Peace.
  8. I had forgotten about the Derweinerschnitzel. I don't remember 16 cent hot dogs, but I remember we used to stop there for lunch after we went to Homer's or Sacco's. Take me back to the 70's when life was so easy! Peace.
  9. Which one? There has to be at least a dozen Fuddruckers in Houston. Good burgers!
  10. Chuck Wagon's hamburgers were the best! There was a Chuck Wagon Drive-In located near Bissonnet and Beachnut in the 70's. Good ole' mustard burgers!
  11. I remember it being only open for a year, if that long. I believe it closed it's doors in 1971 due to lack of customers. I remember seeing the biggest goldfish I had ever seen (~16"). Also you have to join or sign in, but here's a link to a video of the park (5th link down): http://www.sixflagshouston.com/videos/
  12. I see your Avitar is Holder's Pest Control. My brother was in Pack 321 Boy Scouts with Dale Holder's (owner) son. They used to live in a large house on the corner of Wateka Drive and Troulon Drive in Sharpstown. Did you know that Dale Holder has a tatoo of that "roach" image on his arm?
  13. Interesting article: http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/stories.../28/focus1.html
  14. This is from O.W. Gray "National Atlas" published in 1884.
