Did anyone wear Kaepa tennis shoes, the one's with the two different shoelaces on each shoe, made in SA?
Surma's had some awesome brownies, they were the best ever. Sommers drug store wow another name from the past. As for Gyro's I actually ate lunch there a year ago its still good.

Sommers, Revco and Skillerns (I think that what it was), did those become Eckerds and Revco?
Anyone remember those pastries at Centeno's?

I'm a 1964 graduate of Marshall High School. I'm almost certain the winner of the Spirit contest (KONO) was Marshall High School. I remember well the fact everyone concentrated on getting student signatures for the contest even more than on their studies during the contest. Ah! The memories!

Interesting...I graduated in the early 80s from there. I can't imagine how far out in the country the school was back then...or how far you had to drive before you were in traffic and SA growth. I'd love to hear your recollections some time...I know that Marshall was the only high school then but Holmes was opening soon and then Jay a couple years later...what a drive some had if they lived over by Lackland AFB/Valley Hi and had to drive all the way to MHS...private message me if you get a chance or maybe you wouldn't mind posting some recollections on here of how the NW area was, back in the late 50s and 60s!! Thanks!

*Felix's coffe shop at the Kon-Tiki...was a martini lounge, w/o the martinis...WAY freakin' kewl.
*Leon's, his brother's, right across the street...they don't talk, still...but both good businessmen and family men. (Adella, I still love you!!!)
*Stillwater, local group...Gary, Tom, Mark, Lisa.

What about The Abbey at Lubinaski's? They still get together now and then and play. I haven't heard them in decades. At that time I lived on FM1518 between Schertz and I10. Lubinaski's was THE place to go.

La Louisanne - I ate there a couple of times and the food was great.

Felix's/Leon's - Ate at both of them a lot of years ago. I preferred Felix's.

Stillwater - I'll bet my mom or dad still has their picture in a box somewhere, They were wearing the old western clothes and it was in a barnwood frame and it hung on the wall in our living room. I remember them going to parties at our house in the late 70's (?).

I believe they played at the Golden Stallion all the time.

Who used to go to the BBP Blue Bonnet Palace?? Or the Texas Dance Hall. I saw Garth Brooks there for $5 I also saw the Judds for around the same IT was way before they were famous . At the BBP I got on stage with Charley Daniels. Just dancing and chit with my wife. He was a nice guy. The Music, Rock and Country Scene, was pretty good in an around SA. I have another Claim to fame. I was flying out of SA on business one day. We are in our seats and I tell my buddy. Hey there is Jimmy Page. He says no way. I say Yep I know him anywhere. About this time a person with a Jimmy Page tour jacket gets on. Their in First class so when his wife gets up, I make my Move. Got his auto and told him, he was the greatest Guitar Player I have ever seen Blah Blah Blah. He was a very nice guy. OF course when his wife got back. I had to go back into my Sardine Seat. Even when we flew Into O 'Hare, I was getting off the Plane and I feal a tug on my Shirt. I look around and he says Thanks for your support Mate. It seems that there was always some kind of signings in SA. Sound Warhouse moved into SA and that was the cheapest place to get Records. I went to a Cheap Trick Signing there. All Though it was the Cheapest I think I went to Flip Side more. They had underground comics there too and IMports. There was also a big rumor floating around that if you knew the password, you could buy Dope there. LOL Wasn't into that So I never knew if it was true. Who was the Band that had those tshirts made up from there song of Disco Sucks. I remember Legs Diamond was big in the SA area. I also remember hanging out at the Comedore Swim Club and listening to Rick Deringer on 8 Track. Times were pretty good then.

Austin Highway and Lanark -- Town North shopping center near Wonder Bowl. In that shopping center there was also a Piggly Wiggly, a barber shop, and a few other stores. The Piggly Wiggly is now a huge thrift store. Not sure about the rest.
