What the heck is the big white building in Anahuac on a big mound of dirt?
Went down to Oak Island to eat, and it was closed so we eat at a mexican food place. On the way we passed by this big white house? and several other buildings, one looked like a small church.
When you go in to Ahahua and turn left right and follow that road they will be on the right side near the bay.

That is George Pontikes JR.. I went to high school with his Daddy...Geo. SR..better known as 'The Greek'. (he loved that nickname.) 'Greek' was one helluva athlete at Lamar High (lettered in basketball and football)...and later at Rice Univ (football) back when Rice was winning the SW Conference under Jess Neely.. Greek eloped with one of Glenn McCarthy's daughters (Glenna). Word was that Glenn wasn't too happy with that.. LOL.

He was one of the nicest men God ever put on this earth.. Glad to see his son carried on in the family tradition of builders...but on a much larger scale...Lost the Greek about five years ago...Good people
