I was in the Lucky Spur yesterday where I bought a new t-shirt that says “Spur, TX: Where Every Day’s a Holiday, And Every Night’s a Party”. Perfect for Spur Homecoming because our yearly homecoming event is unsurpassed. The t-shirt could easily say “Spur Homecoming: Where every year it’s a holiday, and every class reunion is a party”.
Folks have been coming by the newspaper office all day to renew their subscriptions, buy papers, or ask questions. It’s always fun to hear them talk about Spur when they lived here. Occassionally someone will come by who once worked at the newspaper. They talk about the old days and the way type was set on a linotype machine. I’m glad I came along in the computer age.
For some it was the good old days, and I know they have fond memories. As for me I like fond memories but I’ll keep today’s modern conveniences of setting the newspaper on computer and emailing it to the press. It allows me to enjoy the “holiday” and the “party”.
Welcome home exes!
