Just checking in with the real hoots. I've got you book marked and check daily. Keep up the good stuff. Rock on Luby's


P.S.-The Luby's board is not much fun anymore.

Thanks, my friend. I hope all's well with you and yours. One of these days you and I will have to get together and pretend to get drunk. After a certain age the real thing could be fatal, but the pretext could be a lot of fun. War stories about cafeteria life would be tame for most people, but some of us would find it great fun.

Seriously, my career managing what many people carelessly refer to as the "working poor" has shaped my attitude a lot. Despite a mean streak Piccadilly had a core respect for the everyday people who made the operation run smoothly. I'm sure the same was true at Lubys. Good managers always knew that real dedication cannot be bought. It has to be earned.

I have been gone over four years now. I hope, for the sake of the company, some remnant of that appreciation survives. Without it the deepest pockets in the world will not save the company.
