Bud's Bar

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...

[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.
