  1. I was browsing the newspaper The Bellaire Texan dated September 26, 1962 and came across a crime article. The article was about the neighborhood U'Tote'm store located at 4102 Willowbend Blvd. This is the present day empty Frank Liu field? Or possibly the Best Care EMS place? Did anyone ever go here? When did it open? Close? Was this a stand alone building or attached to a retail strip center? Very cool history! (not the crime.)
  2. Now I've just remembered something else from my days in Houston over 40 years ago. I recall us stopping by a convenience store chain called "U-Tote-Um." The sign was an indian totem pole. Does anyone else out there remember those stores? LeRoy Melcher / Melcher Investments. Are there any popular chain convenience stores over there in Houston? If there are, what are their names? There are some Racetrac's over here. I looked up their website. It said that there are also some over in the Houston area. I saw an article in the Houston Chronicle that said that the Diamond Shamock stores in Houston are changing their names to Valero. I don't know if the ones over here will do that or not. When I last saw them, they were still Diamond Shamrock. Chet Cuccia
  3. A close look at the sign shows more detail than I remember on later signs.
