Robert Earl Keene's Merry Christmas from the Family

Well folks, here we are again with the Christmas holiday season fast approaching.
With that, try to keep in mind- - -

Joy comes to us in moments - ordinary moments.
We risk missing out on joy when we get too busy
chasing down the extraordinary.

Merry Christmas to the "Buds" family...

[04/30/16]   5 years......RIP Budman.....

[03/31/16]   Found out last night that Bud's sweet mascot dog passed away about two months ago. RIP Thor. You were the best.

[01/03/16]   So I've had a request to help organize a Bud's Bar reunion. Tentatively, this will take place upstairs at The Fat Seagull. No date or definite plan yet. Just wanted to give a heads up and get some feedback/suggestions etc.

[12/18/15]   Merry Christmas again everyone.......enjoy

In 9 days, Bud will be gone for 4 years. This campaign is only for 7. Please consider making a small donation in his memory. He would have loved this. Humane Society was his thing.

[11/25/13]   These are the times when I miss Bud's most, we could smoke in the diner when it was cold, and just not have to worry about judgmental people or not fitting in, we all had stake in Bud's, it was out sanctuary, I love and miss you all and the place we once called home.
