Pep--you hit the mother lode.
Hoppy was one of my favorites too.

Talked to Lash on several occasions --character--and had a chance to buy his brace of .45's.---At least I got to hold them--kicked myself ever since for not getting them.

Authenticity certificate and the man selling them--Lash himself.

Interesting afternoon, went out to garden to pick, Happy Birthday was out pacing, unusual for him on such a hot day.

"Whats wrong with you Happy?"
Working along the fence all of a sudden--ZZZZZ Tick tick--

Recognize the sound anyday--3 ft rattler----Happy gets extra rations again.

Frugal? What a nice way of saying miserly?
Happy is your daughter's cat?

Good Morning , Holland.

How about both, in learned ways.--and I learned both from Jan, and the history of Holland and the struggles of same, including who I am talking to right now.

Happy is a rooster, Happy Birthday, because every morning he sings happy birthday to everyone, thus the name.

Tomaz-- the cat was a wanderer who I recognized as same, took care of him for a while and he went on his own quest of life.--

My Daughter is 33 now.

Ajla, I have to share this with you:

My Friend, Jan was rather irritated one day, and I asked why.
He and his wife were making a chair, by hand--

He was irritated because in polishing the legs with a piece of fabric and his Dutch description of the polish, his wife couldn't keep up.

I finally pieced it together, and found that you take fabric, put polish on it--one stands to each side and gets the rhytham going and the piece is hand polished.!


He told me several weeks later--"-----, I want you to see my chair"---It was a work of art!!!!

Pep--AIRBORNE!!!

Cheap, Knock Off's, of Boyd are going for $10-15 each, you have some prime stuff there--Get an appraisal--

Lash--Talking to him in Atlanta , a Boor came up and insulted him about his abilities to wield a Bullwhip,

"Go sit down and smoke that Cigarette down a bit and I will be with you shortly"

And he was that good.
