  1. My brother said there was an old Cushman Dealership to the east of downtown across the bayou. Close to where the old Peden Iron and Steel building was. I do know Sears sold Cushman scooters but only in red and white. My brother was trying to find the shop a friend got one that was blue and white. Thanks for trying. Much appreciated.
  2. Does anyone remember any old motorcycle shops in particular shops that sold Cushman Scooters and any Harley shops around the years 1960-1966. They would be listed in the old Houston Yellowpages but alas, I can’t find any. Thanks for any help.
  3. Back in the 70's there was a small Jewelry shop in the 700 block of Telephone Rd. It was in a small strip center with a turret looking design on one end. Many people from Austin High got their senior rings there. Back then it was painted dark brown with white trim that gave it a Swiss feel. Does anyone remember the name?
  4. I loved going to the "little store" for cokes and laffy taffy. Dibellos was located on the corner of Avenue K and 66th in the East End. It was a converted house. The building is still there.
  5. And that's the way it is. I'll miss him.
  6. The event starts at 9 a.m. and runs until... who knows. There will be muscle cars, antique cars, low riders, classic cars and who knows what else will show up. There will be live music and food. The proceeds will go to the Pearland PD for the purchase of all terraine vehicles for search efforts. Come on by and check it out. And then come inside and say hi to me at the paint counter. No.. you don't have to buy anything. When I left work this evening they were firing up the pits and icing down the drinks. See ya!
  7. Was this close to the bowling alley? I think it was called Fairlanes?? And was there a Mr. Gattis Pizza close? Or am I at a different corner? I do remember going to the Parkview and eating at the Sizzler next door.
  8. We used to slide down Hippie Hill on blocks of ice. We would get huge ice blocks from the ice house on Harrisburg and put them in coolers and drag them to the top of the hill and away we went. This was at night of course. We were the cause of all the ruts in the hill. Sorry.
  9. Wow. Is that the naked Esperson Building? Yes it is! I really enjoyed the photos on that site especially the ones of Galveston. Thanks for posting.
  10. Thanks for the pics. I never knew Waco was such a pretty and quaint place.
  11. Is that tall yellow oil derick still on the gulf frwy? It was on the inbound side right after Howard Johnsons and before Oshmans Warehouse very close to Wayside. I remember it from back in the sixties. I think it was advertisement for the office complex that was built there. Lots of identical little white office buildings. It had a name but I can't recall. Maybe something like Office City.
  12. Same thing happened to me last year. I left my full recycle bin out to be picked up and when I returned home I had no bin. The next week it was replaced with a new red bin from a different company.
  13. I remember Mr. Blue. The last time I heard it was on National Lampoons Vacation right before Clark wakes up and realizes he's been sleep driving. Call me Mr. Blue. My song is Young Love by Tab Hunter.
  14. Evil is right! I felt strange for days after I went there. I could'nt get the place off my mind. Climbing up on the wall and getting the pic of the staircase really gave me the heebie geebies. I was feet from where the murder took place and the atmosphere was just chilling. I felt like I was being watched the entire time. I had taken a brick from the front entrance as some sort of macabre souvenier but took it back and tossed it in the yard. No bad karma for me!
  15. I have walked my dogs past that house every morning since 2001. Yikes!
  16. Just learned something a little odd. Bill List was the biological father of Ron Carlton. Ron was the brother of Debbie Thornton, one of the victims in the Karla Faye pick axe murder. Bill left when Ron was three and he was raised by his step father. The police thought Bill List might have hired someone to kill Debbie because she was to testify against him for tax evasion. Not sure if he was also Debbies father.
  17. That street on the property is part of the original driveway. The homes that now sit north of the street are on what used to be a very long reflection pond. Sure would'nt want to live there.
  18. This is the back of the mansion that faces the bay. The front looked exactly the same as the back. There was a pool in between the front and back buildings with tons of plants and a walkway over the pool. This is the glass covered area in between the front and back portions of the mansion. It contained the pool. This is where Mr. List was shot. The partial door visible at the bottom right is the doorway to the garage. Smiley was waiting at the top of the spiral staircase with a shotgun. Mr. List was killed as he came through the garage door.
  19. I got onto the property in the early 90's and took a couple of pictures. I'll scan and post them as soon as I find them. I used to have the original of the chronicle article. It had quite a few photos. Some color and some black and white. It showed how the kids tore the place up before killing Mr. List. I remember photos of food thrown on the walls, a knife sticking out of the wall and plants thrown into the pool. Very eerie.
  20. 2 Golden retrievers: Mr. Osmond Lee and Miss Sophie Lou. Cockatiel: Melvis Q Presley. Cat: Big Baked Beaners Bitty Balls or Beaners for short.
  21. I remember that place and yes it smelled great. I would go there to buy these extremely long cigarettes that came in different colors with gold filters. I was so cool.... NOT!
  22. I got mine too. Wish they would have put some pics of Brigade in there or just some older pics period. Its basically the same all the way down to the cover as the book I bought a few years ago. Me Disappointed! :-(
  23. Did you see the guy in his camo jacket? Unreal.
  24. Marion E. Pantzer was shot and killed in "Just" Marion and Lynns on March 11, 1986. Her partner Lynn Hornaday was not hurt. The club was located at 903 Richmond. Twins was located in the 3200 blk of Stanford right behind the Chicken Coop and around the corner from Bacchus which was located on Lovett.
