Fall is in the Air
By L'Angelo Misterioso, Esq., M.B.E.
Greetings fellow residents of Montrose and
other areas of Houston. Hasn't the cool,
clean, fall air been nice? Really makes you
want to get outside.
Rumor has it that the building that formerly housed Beach's is to be reincarnated
as some type of guest house and a restaurant. Quite noticeable is the recent installation of windows in the rear of the building
And just why was the neon sign above the
outside bar turned on? Ghosts maybe?

Has anyone noticed how much trash, bottles and general filth has accumulated on
the corner of Pacific and Crocker. It's disgusting. Whoever is responsible for that
area ought to clean it up. It's not a dumping
ground, you know! Everyone should be a
little more conscientious of the litter problems in Montrose. Maybe we should resurrect the old values of the early 70's when
everyone was ecology minded. Were not
pigs, you know.

Did anyone notice the premonitory
temperatures on the Liberty Bank clock last
Saturday. As the Mouth passed by, it went
from 63° to 53° in less than two minutes. Of
course at that time it was still in thelow80's.
But as the temperatures actually dropped
Sunday night, it seemed the clock must
have been issuing a warning.

Recently noticed an advert for something
called "Eugenics" to be held at Numbers II

The Mining Company's friendly daytime
David recently threw a party. He was the
first to leave and ended up very close to
Mother Nature. Oh, dear.
The Mining Company has "a new fall special. It's called Shooters and consists of a
choice between five different drinks—B-52,
Kamikaze, Pearl Diver, Russian Qualude,

retto for $1.25.
