Right, some of the ex's carried the gathering to the recently-reopened Tomato Pizza restaurant, now a few miles north in Sanger, TX.
(The original "Flying Tomato" was on Fry Street, across from the North Texas campus; the background mural salutes their Denton history!)
Left to right, Pam Shepard (wife of Sandy,) Chris and Ray Whitworth, Earl Armstrong and Mike Shannon.  Sandy Shepard attended, but
was behind the photographer's lens at the time!


The Denton Library was most gracious in plugging the event, and allowed Sandy Shepard
to bring up some wonderful KDNT artifacts for exhibition.  Very special thanks to
Leslie Couture at the library for spearheading the event and making it run as smoothly as possible!


The Denton newspaper remembers
