Uncle Roy and Lone Star Beer

For some reason, I’ve always associated Uncle Roy with Lone Star beer.

I can still see him sitting under that tree next to the garage, where you come around the back of the house, sitting with a bottle in his hand and cooler next to his side. I guess if we had been around more in my late teen years, he might have even offererd one to me!

Next time I pickup a six pack, I’ll make it Lone Star and toast to Uncle Roy!

    I remember finding him in the corner outside the house where the carpot meets the backroom. We would just sit in the sun while Roy would smoke his cigarettes. I would play with his magnifying glass and burn the “butts”.Then after a while we would gather up all the kids and go to Sonic in the back of his truck for a Icee, snowcone, etc..
    Good times,……….
