Thanks to each one for your kind words and thoughts concerning the loss today of my brother in law. He was more friend than kinfolk.
About 3 years ago we all (about 12 familymembers) rented a beach house near Galveston Texas. My SIL did not like her husband to touch booze, even tho she knew he nipped when she was not looking.
One day we all went into downtown Galveston to see the tourist traps and souvenier shops. Me and Bert would duck into one of the many sidewalk bars and have a cold one (it was mid July) just one and then leave. Somewhere along the way we walked down a alley and ended up in Honeys Oriental Lounge. All I'm gonna say is that if you ever find yourself there, hang on to your money and your clothes. And don't let your wives know anymore than you have to. He and I "escaped" but we have laughed over that for years. I told my wife about it, sorta, but he wouldn't ever tell his. I told him it was too funny not to tell. My wife (his sister) told me that she would liked to have seen those two old fat men skedaddle out of there as fast as we did. Bless her heart, she has a good sense of humor. I'm sure gonna miss brother in law.

this is a true story, hope it didn't offend anyone.

you didn't tell the complete story! Comon' details!
Sounds like he was a kinda guy you wanted with ya in situations like that.;^)

When you get in the market for another BIL, I think Indydirtfarmer might have one he'll sell cheap.

Nah.............memories are the best to remember, laugh about, and when one is young, or even older........enjoying the fun of a close friend or family member, are some of the priceless memories one has when we lose a family member...... Sorry for your loss.
