It may have been
six or seven eight or nine nine or ten years ago when Corinne and Billy happened to run into each other at the Alamo. As they spent a few minutes talking over the "good-ol-days" Corinne remarked how good it would be to get together with some old school pals. That was about it! The thought languished for a couple of years and then a funny thing happened.
Rufo's Muffler shop, now converted to Normans, a really swinging restaurant and bar, became a meeting place for a few of the old classmates that Billy and Corinne talked about. Five or six folks would show up Wednesday evenings and spend a couple of hours chatting and eating and having a generally great time sharing what was left of the memories of years past and renewing friendships that would last for years to come.
Soon the word spread and a few more folks would show up. Then even more would find their way to what became a weekly Wednesday evening "gathering". Someone suggested that maybe a weekly change of scene and the chance to experience varied cuisine would be a good idea. That started the "crew's" plans to meet at different venues each week.
As the word spread more and more folks would join the crew. As many as 25 or 30 people would show up on occasion. Wow! What a fun gathering had been created. Monthly, it was suggested, the crew would meet at Ashleys to celebrate birthdays. Cake and frivolity would be served. No one minded getting older.
An idea whose time had come.
A fine bunch of people.
A unique gathering.
What a Kick
What a Crew
What a fine thing to do
Now it's time to get off the dime
