Texas Gang’s San Antonio summer weekends

Background: From 2004 through 2007, my Texas Gang of friends gathered at Lake McQueeney for summer fun. We were able to get together through the generosity of the McColleys who loaned us their lakehouse. The Alexanders brought their boat over from Houston. Friends and family from Ft. Worth, Austin, Houston, and even as far away as Indiana and Florida gathered bringing games, music, and food and beverages galore, but the most important element shared was FRIENDSHIP. In an early post on this blog, I shared photos of our antics in 2007. (

For three years the Gang was unable to get together. Then in the summers of both 2011 and 2012, we all met at the McColley home in San Antonio, again because of their generosity. All the same elements were brought together again: games, music, food, beverages, and friendship.

To view a slideshow of the Texas Gang’s 2011 or 2012 activities and antics during those San Antonio summer weekends, click on any photo below.

Bill Alexander directs…who knows…as Shelley Penrod and Jody Emerson sit poolside. Dan Thomas calculates the volume of the pool’s water. Or maybe Bill is trying to get everyone’s attention to listen to Toby Keith’s “I’ll Never Smoke Weed with Willie Again”
