This place looks pretty good too. Downtown St. Louis has a lot of good places to eat.
This is one of the few diners that bring back memories of days gone by left in America. This place is in downtown St. Louis. I passed by this last December. I hope to get back some day and enjoy the meal.
This decorative bike was given to me by Lyman's family. It now sets near my desk here at Studio 312. It's a great reminder of an awesome friend who loved life and loved the people he knew in life. I'm going to think of Lyman with every mount of the bike this year. I'm really going to miss him.
Lyman Stough II was a fantastic friend and motorcycle riding companion. He passed away on December 30, 2013. His obituary in part is as follows:
Lyman passed away at age 60 on December 31, 2013 at his Alamogordo residence after a bout with pneumonia.
Lyman was born to Lowell and Edith Stough of Alamogordo. He graduated from Alamogordo High School, where he was honored as an all-state basketball player before playing for Dick Drangmeister at WNMU, where Lyman completeda bachelor’s and master’s degree. He served as a student assistant basketball coach his final two years at WNMU.
After graduation he moved to Cliff, NM where he was Pete Shock’s assistant for five years, including one undefeated season. Lyman’s next promotion was to head coach at Lordsburg where he worked for seven years. After this, he served a six year stint as athletic director at Morenci, AZ. It was in Morenci that Lyman was married for a five year period. While in Morenci, he jumped at the opportunity to run a golf course for a year, since golf was one of his passions. The golf course job was fulfilling, but undercapitalized, so Lyman took on a Child Protective Services program for about eighteen months in Sierra Vista, AZ. His love of sports enticed him to take an Athletic Director position in Chinle, AZ, that lasted a year. From Chinle, Lyman accepted an Assistant Principal position in Globe, AZ where he stayed about four years. He subsequently went back to Chinle for one year as an Assistant Principal before heading to Fort Sumner as a Secondary School Principal. Lyman decided to move back to his home town of Alamogordo, where he worked for a Xerox Company until his passing.
Lyman is survived by a sister, Lynda Scofield and her husband, Bob of Albuquerque and their two children, Jarrod Scofield of Albuquerque and Amanda Scofield and husband Rick of Fort Collins, Colorado. Lyman is also survived by an aunt, Carol McCommon of Parker, AZ and her two children, Shaun McCommon of Tucson and Shannon Beate of Lincoln, NE.
Party games are always a favorite. This game is played with apples tied to strings that are attached to a pole held above heads. The players see who can eat the apple first. This picture was taken at Galilean Missionary Baptist Church in Valley Park Missouri around 1973 or 1974. The lady on the far left is Nancy Burton. She is still a friend to this day.
