Native Americans - Edward Curtis
Boy with Arbuckle Coffee box a garment
worker, 1913 Roxbury, Ma

Friends, 1992 - Tebby & David 6 & 7th from R

This photo was taken a few years before I came out
here and was the last time I saw most of these people.

This was a gathering and pot luck of Thai Food
and friends, as Tebby/David were going back to Thailand
to adopt, Danny Bett. Danny, is now in college
and appears to be doing very well.
Through the years, they kept him involved
with and in the Thai Community.
I look forward to hearing all the news
at some point in the near future.

David & Tebby are very special friends.
David is still part of Reilly & Maloney (link)

My best to ya'll and Thanks as
always for stopping by and leaving
a comment when ya do.

Well I was going to comment on how much I admire Morris' design work, below... and then I saw the pic that included Maloney. It brought back so many memories of seeing him and Ginny Reilly perform at Harry Hope's outside of Chicago, and, then after I moved to SF, at the Great American Music Hall... varied, but along with the 'family' at the time, Jim Post, Tom Dundee. Thanks.. -Jayne

Coffee Messiah said...

h & h: Hey, I might have seen you back then. I think I saw them at the Rusty Scupper the most, since I was underage. Dundee is missed and Post does a Mark Twain show in Galena, Illinois.

Thanks 4 stopping by!

Yes, I will always remember Tom as a skinny kiddish young man singing 'Delicate Balance' in that smooth voice...and not long ago I sent JP a note thanking him for singing kids songs, and being able to introduce him to my kids n that way. I was underage when I first started hearing their music... but at the time one could get into nightclubs (late 70's) sans-drinking stamp, just to enjoy the music... Steve Goodman was one of the Chicago group back then and Corky Siegel... OMG I do go on...sorry & thanks for reminiscing! w/ me!-J
I'll post at my place in case you come back over...
