So, there I am, photographing an event, the opening of the new Ornelas Dorm building at Tyler Junior College, neck deep in current and former Apache Belles, hearing wonderful stories, engaging in fine dining, all that, when in walks another Texas curmudgeon, Congressman Fred Head, from Athens, Texas, who is married to an ex- Apache Belle, (still gorgeous after all those years with Fred.) Fred hands me a card with that JESUS graphic on the back that you have to stare at the negative space to read and then starts telling me about how formative his years and the people at TJC were. (Like duh. You married a BELLE Fred!) He goes on to tell me about the founder of the famous Drill teaming Belles, Margaret Stringer who had a devoted white poodle named Gavroosh. When I transited from the dorm to the associated luncheon I went through Lindsey Lane to change batteries and googled up "Gavroosh" on the mac. Turns out its "Gavroche", via Wiki, a child character in Les Miserables who is a singing fool. White poodle. Named for a French Child singer. Makes sense.
I report to Fred at the luncheon. Jesus saves.
Gotta love the web. Gotta love life in Tyler.
