No matter how much greedy, short-sighted men (wanting only to line their own pockets) change her, I will always love Galveston, my hometown.
Many Disney cartoons were viewed at the Martini. I saw On Any Sunday there. Foul Play was the last (for me to see there). My Dad works on the 18th floor of the building in the background.
I ate my first grilled cheese sandwich in that place back when it was a Walgreens. It was Christmas time, and I was with grandparents.
My first "real" job (punched in and out, paid into Social Security) was as a busboy at Gaido's. I went to school with two of the kids.
My 4th and 5th grade years in school we went to Sea-Arama Marineworld (one of the first waterparks in the U.S.A.) on the last day (of school).
