Patrick and the Amazon

"Remember when" stories of the family

"Patrick and I [Cynthia], along with somebody else, went to a then-local hot spot [in Houston, Texas] called "The Crystal Pistol", which had strippers. One of the strippers was a tall and beautiful girl dressed in a tiger skin outfit and billed as "The Amazon". She did the usual and after she had changed back to normal clothes, she came to our table and said "Hi, Mr. Karl".


She was a student in one of his classes at Bellaire High School. Pat asked her how she got into this business and she said "Beats scrubbing floors". (At least this is my [Cynthia's] basic memory.)

As told by Cynthia Sprong Karl to Elizabeth Karl Churchett via e-mail on 9 Mar 2002
