Hey Randy ! I'd wait for your birthday to welcome you to the big 70, but we will be in Spain on that day, so, have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY at the appropriate time.

Great to hear from Daulton and Larry. Pete Minor and I were best friends, having both moved to RALEIGH at the same time. We naturally bonded and were tight with Jim Speidel, Rich Fary, Tommy Martin and Bill Barbour. Pete and I would spend Friday nights generally getting in trouble: climbing water towers, swimming in water tanks, visiting 'ghost houses' (once generated 12 of Raleigh's finest to join us), and another occasion I recall cranking up a steam roller that was working on Broughton's parking lot. That occasion drew another of Raleigh's police so we jumped off the moving equipment to make our escape!

Sad that things just didn't work out for such a musically talented and generally great guy. I miss him after all these years
