I Sure Do Miss....

It seems with every trip home during the last two or three years, a new business or restaurant has made their arrival in Seguin.

What are some businesses and/or restaurants that contain great memories that you would love to see re-open? Here's my list:

The Corral (we spent some great weekends dancing to Firefox and the Emotions)
K & N Drive-In (this was a drive-in restaurant on Kingsbury Street that had the BEST steak fingers and root beer that was served in an icy mug)
Lehman's Five and Dime (off the square on Austin Street. They had great burgers and Borden's icecream that was served out of a machine. They also had those stools that spun in circles if you chose to sit at the bar)
Candies ( many memories of walking back and forth from Gattis to Candies on Friday and Saturday nights)
Baenzigers and Wuests Grocery Stores (these up-to-date "super" markets just can't beat our two family-owned stores)

How about your list? Share it with us...

I have fond memories of the Corral. I just thought about the band Firefox the other day. My 11.5 year old son has become fond of the band "The Clash" from playing the video game Rock Band (they include "Should I Stay or Should I Go" in the game). Firefox used to play "Rock the Casbah" at least once every night that I heard them. I never heard the song on the radio, so I always associated that song with Firefox. I also remember the red parachute pants. I wonder what became of that band. Good times.

In 1993, their drummer Scott played at my wedding. Lendin contacted me about a year ago. He's stayed in touch with two or three of the members, but I'm not sure if they're involved with any area bands. Maybe we can get them to reunite for our 25th Reunion?
Isn't Rock Band great? My son is also getting into some of the 80's bands.
