    Hey! Why not invite the Texas division of NORML to the “floating-G”?

    The Texas Rangers won’t invade Galveston. Do it.
    When we owned the island in 1963-1970 we did anything we wanted. Smoke huge marijuana spliffs on the Seawall Blvd. at 25th street. Have some fun down there on Halloween.

    As the very first ocean surfers in Galveston…. don’t you think we need our own Vietnam-type, bronze memorial statue of 5-guys hanging-out across from the 25th “Boulevard Drive-in, where gum smacking blonds in red satin pants brought food on a tray to your car window?
    Put the statue right next to the “Phil de Can” trash can and concrete bench, on the east side of the pier. We ruled and I want the teeming masses to remember it.

    Hey!……….. Is Bongo Joe going to be beating on his twin 50-gallon Trinidad drums in front of Plantowski’s Seashell Pier on Seawall Blvd. & 23rd street? Well why NOT??

    Find a new Bongo Joe then….. and soon.

    The original scene from 1964, was Bongo Joe riding up on his bicycle, which held a rack for his twin “drums” – tuned by ripping each drum’s bottom-end upwards and then bent to the note he wanted). The angle and degree of the bend created a complete octave. He whistled between his top two missing front teeth. Rumor was, that Bongo Joe had cake, owed a house in Jamaica, and would split G-land to warmer climes in the winter. He always came back, but was last seen in San Antonio playing drums by the canals.
    In front of Plantowski’s Sea Shell Pleasure Pier, he would drum and whistle while skateboarders (metal wheels) scratched 360’s into the concrete. 🙂

    The fellow that owns the Hotel Pier at 25th Street is reportedly a real “dick-head” to work for, just to let him know what local people are saying, so maybe he wants to change whatever he’s doing that’s pissing people off. 🙂

    Galveston is where things happen in Texas. Brownsville/Port Isabel, at the tip of Texas has cleaner water, bigger and better waves, but you’ve got that King Ranch between Corpus Christi and Brownsville and that’s all private dead-space wilderness that takes up 1/3 of the state, essentially reducing the usable Texas landmass to the size of Ohio.
    So, there’s a lot of changes on the horizon for Texas:
    1. Their conservative Republican governor (Perry) is not seeking re-election. The state of Texas is still controlled by the Baptist Church (“blue laws” on Saturday still exist, Jezan’s can’t wrench on Saturday because they can’t buy parts).
    2. Texas today is attempting to tell “Texas women” what they can and cannot do with their bodies, which is not going-down so easily. The little women are kicking back.
    3. Not surprisingly, Texan’s want marijuana available to them by a margin of 72%. You can’t have 27 states allowing pot, and tell “Texans” they aren’t trustworthy enough for very long and not have them push it right back in your face, has been my experience.
    4. The political lady that filibustered at the Capitol in jogging shoes is a Democrat and may run for Governor and she’ll win.
    Imo, don’t go down to Galveston, get too drunk, fall on your face, bust yo’ lip and wake up with a screamin’ hangover. Think outside the beer can this time. You’re on Galveston Island – so have a good time and return often.

    Kirk: Apparently the guy next to me at the bar last night along Seawall tried to relive some of the good times you mentioned only he was about thirty years old. He was passed out colder than Cooter Brown sitting straight up on his stool. Hotel staff had to help him to his room.

    “He was passed out colder than Cooter Brown sitting straight up on his stool.’

    I dunno Walt…. never heard of anyone actually passing-out like Cooter…. after smoking a hooter…..?

    Is there going to be any more of that coming back? … just wondering.

    LMAO Kirk Perry. It’s just Texas and we love it the way it is right now brother! Let’s just all chill and come back next year! You all going to love it here in the land so ZZ Top!
