The Mayor of Arp, Texas

During last basketball season my grandson’s JV team was playing Arp HSJV. At halftime I went up and introduced myself to a gentleman seated on the Arp team bench. I asked him if he knew the Lewis family from Arp. Having known that Guy V. Was from that town I also asked him if he knew the legendary coach for UH. He said, “Yes, I know the family very well. Our gym is named after coach (Guy V. Lewis Gymnasium). We talked on, shared a few stories. Eventually he told me he was the mayor of Arp, at which time I felt very pleased to have made a connection with someone who resided in the town, and knew the family of the legendary coach I admired so much.
It’s a small world! “Be careful how you speak to strangers. You could be entertaining angels unaware!”
