  1. Only one that comes to mind is on 225 East in Pasadena between Burke and Preston. Two masts and studios if memory serves?
  2. Back in the 70's there was a bowling alley on Shepherd or maybe Durham between I-10 and 11th st.?
  3. Been there, done that, and yes it is totally cool......
  4. Listening to the stream and seeing the old 101 Rock logo really brings back memories.
  5. Happened to be running down the feeder on 225 at Independence Thursday and made a quick stop and shoot with my iPhone. G's has seen better days to be certain. Debbi's was where the engineering staff went on the East end of the building They had a/c and mixed drinks.
  6. Disastr & marmar, I stopped by Tookies after a PGR mission Saturday. Started off with the Bombshell, then straight for Mama Ethyl's onion rings and a Tookies Cheeseburger. Had to pump another 10#'s of air into the rear air shock on my scooter before heading on back to Misery City.
  7. When I worked in Greenway Plaza back in 1980 there was a model of the complex in the 'Underground' which depicted a multi story parking garage to be built across 59 which would accomodate propeller driven aircraft. Another case of common sense not allowing something to be constructed I guess?
  8. It was my understanding, or maybe I just dreamed it, that it was going to be a training center for drone jockey's. I'll as around next time I'm out there.
  9. There were two ice houses on Hwy 225 and Battleground Rd (now Independence). On the East side of that intersection was the Breezeway, on the West side was G's Ice House (think Sherwood Cryer of Gilley's fame). Additionally, at the entrance to the San Jacinto Monument on Battleground you have Beesaws which is the only one of the three still open.
  10. Dub


    What was that old tag line of his? 'Dress 70, Talk 80, and Shoot 90 when my putter's hot'
  11. While my experience was not of the magnitude kmarts was, when our jury idiot started their ranting and raving over perceived police mistakes and calling for acquittal they quickly changed their tune when I pulled a book from my pocket and told him when he was ready to have a rational conversation to let me know. Funny how quickly some people can change their tune when faced with having to come back downtown tomorrow and possibly the day after.
  12. I lived at Pecan Plantation I guess it was off of Rampart / Gulfton back in the 70's. Had it's own club and bar by one of the pools with live bands on weekends. Lot's of single ladies and guys. Glad I survived that era of my life.
  13. Dan's post reminded me I had these three photos. 1. Gonzales 2. Fayetteville 3. Turkey It's always such a kick to find these old stations when out on the road.
  14. I've not taken the test in ions, but office mate said the DPS written was only like 15 questions, multiple choice, with some a answers designed to foul you up. One that cam to mind went something like 'The leading cause of motorcycle fatalities is: a. Not wearing a helmet?, b. Having an automobile related wreck?, c. Head injuries? I think the correct answer was c, but you can understand how they are being sneakey.
  15. Don't I seem to remember a phrase that went something like "contributing to the delinquency of a minor" and fine / jail time accompanying it????? Just saying.
  16. I have one for my daily commute from Missouri City to the Baytown area and hit three toll plaza's each way. While I could use 288 to connect to 610, then around to 225, I find that the lack of traffic on the toll road when I make my commute helps with my sanity. Or maybe not if you consult my other half?????
  17. Way back when I was on Committee this was a Park & Ride lot. Will assume it's still the same?
  18. +1 to the Winchester on Bissonett! House band was Issac P. Sweat, with occasional appearances by the likes of Ernest Tubb, Loretta Lynn, Eddie, Rabbit, Porter Wagoner, dang the list goes on and on....
  19. 27-13, was that a great game or what! edit, edit, edit, edit. No point in rubbing it in further.
  20. When worse comes to worse just ask the voter to produce a picture ID, then hand them a ballot (in two languages of course) and a #2 Ticonderoga pencil.
  21. YIT, who did you finally settle on to do the cleaning? I'm in the same position having a two story with five downspouts to be 'snaked' out.
  22. The small diameter hole at the 09:00 position makes the medallion remind me of the old tokens we were given as kids when we went to a public swimming pool that allowed you to put your street clothes and towel in a check basket which was kept in a secure area by the swimming pool staff? The token had a safety pin through the hole which allowed us to pin it to our swim suits. Last one of those I saw was over at the old Stude Park Pool off Studemont back in the early 70's.
  23. After sleeping on it (one of those wake up at 2 a.m. moments and yell) Cellar Door! They also had one on Westheimer and another maybe a block or so off of Stella Link @ West Holocombe. Was wanting to call it Sonny Look's also but not the case....
  24. What was the name of the steak house that preceeded Good Company BBQ location on I-10?
