Happy Time

Submitted by: E J Gouvier


Dateline 1973:  I was a student at THE University of Arizona, I took the summer semester off to earn funds for the fall.  My job was in construction,  primarily carpentry and some concrete work.  After a full day in the Tucson sunshine, my coworkers and I were exhausted and ready for a respite.

The Revelation:    I discovered El Charro one afternoon……    Sitting after work with friends, on the patio (back then open) with a platter of Carne Seca with a cold beverage, and watching the monsoon storm clouds roll into the valley from the north. This was about as close to heaven as I expect to experience in this life.  True rest for the weary.  Happy times indeed
