I think itís obvious that friends make the world go around.  No man is an island, and life would be pretty intolerable without friends.  However , I donít think itís possible to have a large quantity of real friends.  You just canít spread yourself that thin.  I think many people believe they can, but in a crunch, they will learn that these people werenít actually really friends.  So, Iím very happy and grateful to count the following people as my friends.


Christmas, maybe around 2000

Our idea of fun was pouring alcohol down Maureen's throat.

Maureen Goodwin - my best friend in high school.

This was taken June 1976, as we headed off to sell books in Massachusetts for the summer.

The book selling gang at The Old North Church

July 4th, 1976, was our country's 200th birthday. It was a Sunday, so, we had the day off from selling books. A bunch of us drove into Boston to check out the local festivites. We didn't find much, but still got this picture snapped in front of this historic site. (You know - one if by land ...)

Steve Crowder (a.k.a Nick Danger) and me. Another friend, Craig Wells, looking on.

George Crowder - one of my roommates post-college.

My riding buddy from 11th grade.

He had a CB 750, and I had a CL450. We drove those bikes everywhere, and we also were camp counselors together at Shadow Valley Ranch in Prescott, Ariz.
