Those of you who visited and shopped Galveston's famous Strand Surplus Senter, also fondly called Col. Bubbies, will be saddened to learn that its owner, Meyer "Col. Bubbie" Reiswerg passed away yesterday.
Bubbie had such a wit that he was brought to New York as a guest on the David Letterman Show. He brought the house down!
But what I liked best about Bubbie was his ability to debate. More than once he took the Galveston School Board on. He was always far better prepared than they were. The winner was Bubbie in a slam dunk decision.
