maceo: MORE BILL CHERRY'S GALVESTON MEMORIES -- New eBook - 10/19/13 12:53 AM

In 2000, my first book Bill Cherry's Galveston Memories was published by a small Texas press, VanJus Press. 
Amazingly, the thing sold many, many thousands of copies. 
Today, used copies sell for between 3 and 4 times the original cover price, while new copies that were horded by distributors being several hundred dollars each.
For a few months after Hurricane Ike, they were selling for more than $900 a copy.
Amazing!
Within the past few days, I've published a second round of stories.  This time in the e-Book format, and it's available at amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com.  … (0 comments)

About eight years ago, Houston TV station, News24 Houston, did a series of my stories about Galveston's past.  For the heck of it, I'm now adding them a few at a time to Youtube.

maceo: WHAT HAPPENED AT THE MEETING TO SELL TEXANS CASINO GAMBLING - 02/25/11 04:10 AM
Jack E. Pratt, Sr., told me once that he's a Southern Baptist.  He lives in Dallas and has made a bunch of money as the owner of some Holiday Inns, Dairy Queens, and, incongruously, a corporation that owns casinos. 
He's probably in his mid-80s by now, but for years he's been one of the major forces behind legalizing casino gambling in Texas.  He still hasn't given up.
Pratt is a bald headed man who, when I first met him, closely resembled Galveston's living patron saint, George Mitchell.  They're both slim, about the same height and, in addition to both being bald, have the same … (4 comments)

For the last eight years, every Thanksgiving I have shared this extraordinary recipe.  (If you're not interested in how I obtained it, scroll down now to the recipe. ) It's the perfect solution to left over Thanksgiving turkey. 
And just so you'll know, from time-to-time when Patty and I are planning a dinner party, our guests who have been served Turkey Mornay before, will ask that it be the entree.

SLICK THE SHOESHINE MAN, MR. SAM AND CHRISTMAS EVEN 1949
By Dallas Realtor Bill Cherry
Normally Slick the shoeshine man carried 78 RPM records of black artists, the ones that Mrs. Evelyn Stein at the Melody Record Shop around the corner didn't.
But for some reason it was Christmas, and he was pushing a new song written and sung by a white cowboy film star, Gene Autry.  It was "Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer." And it was the Christmas season of 1949, and that song was on its way to becoming the first tune to ever reach the platinum benchmark in sales, even bigger than … (4 comments)

                                              THE STORY
For years and years, after I left Galveston for college, I frequently thought about the Turf Grill's Turkey Mornay. It cost about seventy-five cents back in 1958, as I was boarding the ferry for my trip to New Orleans and its Tulane University.
