Yesterday our good friend Ronnie Namour sent me a copy of his latest music scene column that he had written for the Island Moon. I always love reading his fabulous columns, because he is such a great writer and he has such a great sense of humor.
Long story short, Tony and I met Ronnie several years ago, because of our mutual friend Rick "The Friendly Lighthouse Keeper." And if I remember correctly, every time that Tony and I and our friends went down to Port Aransas to stay at the lighthouse, Rick made a point to be sure to take us to go visit Ronnie. Also Rick brought Ronnie to come visit us when we were still at the rescue ranch. And Ronnie and Rick also came to visit us here at our new place.
Basically when Rick would come up here to see us he always brought along his beautiful, sweet girlfriend Tracy Weatherall or else he would bring Ronnie, who is also good-looking and an encyclopedia on music, too. And it never mattered to Tony or I which one Rick brought along with him, because Tony and I LOVE Tracy & Ronnie.
As y'all already know Rick sadly passed away this past February and it was devastating to us, Ronnie & Tracy and all of Rick's many friends. Here is a picture of Rick that was taken for a Texas Monthly story about him. And a picture that I took of Rick, inside our trailer, hamming it up by pretending to be warming himself up, in front of the TV's faux wood burning fireplace that was in a constant loop.
