Comments

I have been a Floridian since 1973. I miss the hills of Tenneseee, the change in seasons, and the people. Folks in Tennessee tend to be more friendly, more polite, and more helpful.

I don't miss cold weather.

What have I been up to? I work around the house in my retirement. I have been band leader and sound man in bluegrass bands. I am now playing electric bass in an oldies band. The band is named after a Willie Nelson Song. "Not Dead Yet."
I still motorcycle, but have become a fair-weather rider since I retired.

School Story

Everyone may remember this, but here goes:
John Rukavina was a great math teacher. He could be a comedian as well. This is the only funny story I remember him telling and after about 52 years, it may not be exact. Remember his facial feature similar to Jimmy Durante's? Anyway, he could speak Polish when stationed in Poland. In uniform on a public bus two ladies were talking about his large proboscis. He understood, so upon leaving the bus, he said his adieus to the ladies in perfect Polish. He told our Geometry class that they looked like they wanted to crawl under their seat. ha ha!

From the dictionary, for those with a limited vocabulary:
A proboscis /pro??b?s?s/ is an elongated appendage from the head of an animal, either a vertebrate or an invertebrate. In vertebrates, the term is used to describe an elongated nose or snout.

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.

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.
