Some things nobody remembers for sure, some things everybody remembers for sure but differently than any body else does.
Some things just never really happened even though there's pictures!
But here goes the long-story-short version.......

Recognize this 'TableTopper'? It's our own Maggie Welch Brown!
Maggie and husband Steve Brown bought Blaine's Pub in 2008.
Sara Flores Gilbert gives this report..."Rumor has it that Maggie Welch Brown was out on the town at San Angelo's Blaine's Pub...Dancing on the Tables. (Rumor confirmed with these pictures.) There she was 'Totally out of Control'! I jumped up there on the Table and got her down.....she was having toooooo much fun! After saving her from a 'WildNCrazy Crowd'...She jumped back on the table and started Dancing Again!" So, Sara.....If You Can't LickEm...JoinEm? Right? Right!
After seeing Maggie and Sara in action...SuKnitWitty...MHS SandStorm Reporter, decided to check out Blaine's Pub and get the 'RealScoop' on the Maggie/Sara Incident. It didn't make the SanAngelo Standard Times....I checked the Archives.
Meet Don Baker, Class of 1965 Lakeview High School, San Angelo, Texas.
'Baker' caught me taking pictures outside about 10 o'clock in the morning. He's the DayShift Bartender/Janitor/BPub Historian/DoItAll Guy. I was kinda GRIT (GirlRaisedInTexas) embarrassed about being caught RedCameraHanded....the Bad Manner Thingy. 'Baker' was a real TexasGent, even after I Flashed him in the face as he opened the front door. He asked if I'd like to come inside and take pictures....had that 'WhathaHell is SheAbout Look'...but, like I said, he was a real TexasGent.
I Stepped in and....Well.....Here YaAre...Blaine's Pub...Bar of Your Dreams!
Meet JimmyDon Cox...Class of 1969 Lakeview High School, San Angelo, TX. JimmyDon is a 'Local/Regular' at Blaine's Pub. Now, JimmyDon is also a BPub Historian....you see...He's been doin bizness at that very table with some of the 'Big Names' whose pictures cover every wall. Why, Heck, Shugar, his picture is right up there too....right next to Willie's.....daughter. So he must be a celebrity, too. I was thinkin "Ohoooo, SuKnitWitty, you have hit the CrackerJackPot. Sure enough....JimmyDon is a celebrity. His website JimmyDonCox, Western Artist is a place you gotta visit. Not only is he a Cowboy Artist, he's a RealTexasLegend. Seriously, don't miss a visit to his website. Maybe he'll be around Blaine's during the Reunion....Ya'll will really enjoy meeting JimmyDon Cox.
Speaking of Willie...There he is...'BiggerNDallas'. 'Baker' shared some of Blaine's History BeforeTheBrowns...all very colorful and interesting...all right there on the Walls of Blaine's Pub. Course, I was all ears about the History AfterTheBrowns....ReporterInstincts FlatTookOver my GRIT GoodManners. "So, Baker," I said, "Are there any pictures of Maggie & Steve as the NewOwners on the Wall?" "Nope", he said....."But...around here someplace are some pictures of Maggie and Sara Dancing on the Table." JACKPOT.....confirmed....The Maggie/Sara Incident! I quizzed a bit further, but Baker was not TellinAll....he's such a TexasGent.....of course....he's a '65er.
PS...I'm PurtySure 'TheTable' I sat and visited with JimmyDon and Baker is the One.
