Default Native!

I'm a native! Born in Sharpstown Hospital. Lived in Houston until I was 3 and then we moved "way out" to Sugar Land. Grew up there. I miss the days when it was a "small" town. Just Psalms Theater, the sugar factory, drug store and post office basically. Those were the days!

I actually went to the Westland YMCA for many summers and had friends from all over Southwest Houston as a result. Great experience. (This was at the very tail end of the period that Fondren wasn't ghetto and the very beginning of its transition).

When I was 11, my family moved to First Colony, were I attend FCMS and Clements High School (c/o '02). I now reside in Huntsville, TX.

Looks like we've got a Sharpstown Hospital reunion here. LOL
Is that hospital still around?
Last time I went by that area a few years ago I know it was called something else.

Born in Scotland, spent a year in Iowa City in the mid eighties, came here in 1989 and have lived in Houston ever since. This feels more like home than anywhere else now.

Negative. It isn't. The building is still there. I believe it closed sometime in the very late '90's or maybe early 2000's. It was briefly known as Twelve Oaks or something like that. Last time I drove by it, it was noticeably run down inside and a security guard was posted out front sitting in a chair (to deter looting, I suppose).

The last time I was actually inside the building was 1992.
