Makin' the FUN BUG!

The big news at Lubbock Fun Club headquarters this week was the addition of a bright yellow Volkswagen Beetle...and, thanks to our LFC buddy Michael B, she's already got a name...the "Fun Bug!"

This cool little ride will provide Steph with "official wheels" for the LFC as she scoots around town making new friends and working with our advertisers who support this site for everyone. Right now, the "Fun Bug" is solid yellow...bright and fun like the gal behind the wheel...but soon the car will sport some distinctly decorative graphics that'll let you know it's DEFINITELY the rolling icon of this community club. We're excited about it! Steph's very first car was a "love bug" and she had lots of fun with it was the only logical choice when choosing a "fun" car for this new venture. Look for it around town and give Steph a wave when you see her coming your way.

We'd like to publicly thank Gary Warren, Dan Isch, and the whole team at Pioneer Lincoln-Mercury for helping us bring the "Fun Bug" home. She's small...but she's gonna be a big part of the Lubbock Fun Club, that's for sure.

Shane and Steph

Curtain Call: Remembering the King

Thirty years ago today, the king of rock 'n' roll left the building...Graceland... for the last time.

After a morning game of racquetball, Elvis Presley took a seat at his baby grand piano and performed a medley of songs. Can you name the very last song he sang? Hint: It was the 1975 breakthrough hit for Texas legend Willie Nelson. Click here to go to the Fun Club homepage for the answer!
