    More than 50 years since our mutual obsession with bowling, tennis, pool, golf, drinking and smoking began. Thankfully, we outgrew some of those, hehe.. Also, enjoyed cruising in the VW Beetle, and operating the rides at Olympic Park with Jeff… Sorry to hear of his passing. Condolences to Kris and the kinfolks!!!
