The Mite of Ike

Never in my life have I ever seen destruction like this. It was in stark contrast of the beautiful weather in Galveston this day.

Listen in as Sherry Havelka tells Talk of the Bay about her ordeal.

Listen in as Heidi explains to Talk of the Bay about the workings of the TMMSN and what you should do if you happen across a stranded mammal.
 
Col. Bubbies - Galveston

A military surplus store like no other, Col. Bubbies has its own unique stories. 35 years ago, Meyer and Suzie Reiswerg went looking for a pair of blue jeans, similar to the ones that Meyer wore in the military; today they have a 3 story store and a warehouse full of military garb.

Listen in as Meyer tells Talk of the Bay about his “No shoes, No shirt, No service …” adventure.
