  1. Just wanted to share my experiences of Hurricane Katrina. I was born and raised here in Houston TX but moved to Waveland MS in 1997. I worked at Biloxi Regional Hospital the day of Hurricane Katrina. It was worse than a nightmare. I was used to hurricanes after growing up in Houston and living in MS i knew all about the destruction and the damage and the fear that they bring. I never imagined how horrible the fury of those storms could be until Katrina. I was on the 3 rd floor of the hospital as it came ashore we could see Beau Rivage Casino from the hospital room window we watched and felt t
  2. I just found your post on historic Houston. Thank you so much for those old movies of Astroworld. I remember going there as a child and riding the orange wheel , and the space needle.

  4. Does anyone remember getting Big Bonus Stamps and S & H green stamps when you went grocery shopping with your mom. I remember it was such a treat to get the stamps go home lay them out on the floor and stick them in the books. We would be sticky and have stamps everywhere.

I was born in 1964 and I don't remember how old I was when I appeared on the Kitirick show. I just remember the lights were bright and I rode on a carousel. The lady in a cat suit with whiskers and a tail asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up. I said a cowgirl ha ha. I never reached that goal. I remember me and my sister would watch Don Mahoney and Jenna Claire show and we loved it. No cable TV and only a few channels to pick from
  6. Remembering the Houston I grew up in the early 70's thru the late 80's. I live in East TN now but I grew up in SW Houston in Windsor Village in the early 70's. I remember going to Peppermint Park off the 610 Loop. Kiddie Park off 610 and Main. The original Astrodome where I watched Roy Rogers and Dale Evans perform and Dale lost her wig. I am telling my age now. The Roy Rogers restaurant near Joske's in the Galleria. OH my this is so sweet. I remember on Sundays my daddy would take us to the Sage Department Store it was huge. I remember going to Fed Mart in Pasadena with my grandmother. I r
