School Story:

I remember a lot of good times and great people. I also remember not being allowed to hold hands with girls even at football games and almost getting kicked out of school for dating Carole. I remember the cafeteria boycott when I was a junior that got four or five seniors expelled but got the school to remove Cotter from the cafeteria strong arm enforcement detail. I recall how the kids endlessly harassed two music teachers, whose names I forget, because they were gay, although still in the closet in those days. I recall the class of 61 was the first real class of the generation of the 60s with more awareness of its place in society and more distrust of authority than had existed in earlier classes. I remember the great cars, simple and fast and dangerous, cute girls, short haircuts and a good education, despite the catholic church.

Robert, it has been a lot of years of friendship, I hope to keep up our relationship through thick and thin, we just seemed to click from the track team to the glee club and the Lowland Sea , being your understudy was fun, and then selling your increadable wines for 15 years taught me about fine wines,Happy birthday to my good friend, may we always be friends.
