Happy birthday. I hope all is well with you and Hal. I prepared a video for you, but you must use YouTube or Vimeo. I chose Vimeo, which I never used before. The audio is from my multi-tracking audio studio. When I sing along with it and make a video, the voice is slightly out of sync. In other words, don't expect a Hollywood production. Liz is on the washboard. I play bass, guitar and dobro. The banjo track was borrowed from YouTube. So-ooooooo..... Have a wonderful day. You'll never be this young again. Forget the fact that 73 is not the age of a spring chicken. You and Hal celebrate.

Joyce and I have been friends since elementary school. Today is her birthday and I wish her the best ever.

If anyone wishes to see a Cushman very much like Dickie's, I have added a photo to my photo gallery of a similar model with the same color scheme.

This photo of me and my 1960 Cushman Highlander is a b/w photo with color added to the scooter. NOTE: This looks very much like the Cushman Tommy Elam sold to George (Dickie) Vaughn.

Dickie and I had a common interest in electronics, motorscooters and motorcycles. Tom Elam mentions the Cushman, which I knew really well. I helped Dickie do some major engine work, probably around 1962. Dickie was unusual, to say the least. He used to transmit a sound on his CB (yes, he was a ham and a CB operator) to aggravate people. He called it a Q-Bird and it chirped like a bird. I don't see an attachment symbol in this reply section, so I don't know that I can share what I believe to be a sound much like Dickie's Q-Bird. Another unusual thing Dickie did was purposely interfere with a neighbor's TV using some handheld device with an antenna on it. He would do this at night when he could see the TV through a living room window. Maybe I was as unusual as Dickie in my own way and that is why we were good friends until the last time I saw him at the 40th. It made me sad then to see signs of some mental changes. When he was hospitalized and I heard he did not want visitors, that was even sadder. Now I have mixed emotions. Sad - but relieved at his passing. I am going to try to find a way to share my imatation of Dickie's Q-Bird. ........Donnie

In junior high, when others of us were trying to be basketball players, Robert was the best free throw shooter in the class without any help from Coach Bray.  What we needed was a "designated shooter" rule.

Reading Linda's comment about Tony, I wish that we could know our classmates as grown-up men and women.

Hey Don, You say "prepare and present the music" so I ask, Are You a musician?
Music has always been a major part of my life, whether listening or playing. I mostly play bluegrass, but listen to most everything. I was band leader, guitar player, lead and harmony vocalist and sound man in a bluegrass band for a while, but now I mostly jam at nursing homes and Alzheimer day cares. Jamming involves no stress. it is what it is!

Hi Joyce, I hope you have a wonderful day on this your SEVENTIETH birthday. Go celebrate all day long! That is my advice, and you know you should respect the advice of your elders. I am almost two weeks older than you, so I am your elder.

Friends for Life, Donnie

Hi Susan, Are the emails to remind us we have not updated profiles in 6 months automated or were you working on your 'puter at 5:30 AM?

I don't see a birthday in your profile info. Why is that?

Have a nice weekend. Donnie
