George and I were very good friends for a lot of years before his health, my health and other circumstances kind of pushed me out of most things where we could get together...
I am recovering pretty well now from everything except getting old.
I can hear George now as plain as day. (you have to read this fairly loudly)... George: "Guess what I saw up there just a while ago". "Somebody got one of those one wheel Choremasters and made it into a butt buggy!!!".
He loved that line.
I have lots of memories of George from the ATIS list, the various Cubfest including the one here on the farm and private visits. I remember one night at Fremont when Marilyn, George, Diana and I went out to a nice little restaurant. I don't remember what any of the rest of us ate but I remember us kidding Marilyn that she must have ordered sparrow instead of chicken. George called the waitress over and ask that they give Marilyn some real food. I think that on that trip George had put new tires on his Case SC and gave me his old tires which were regular chevron tires but were worn so low that George always referred to them as "turf tires". One of those tires is still going.
Lots of memories, all good.
Sadly we will be unable to make the trip to Fremont.
I think I need to go do something else now...
