    Re: I have some very sad news...

    Thanks, N2Bluz.

    Cool you'll be adding some ''Bama to your band's playlist.

    The photo of Kelly playing table hockey reminds me of the early '80s and trips - many trips - to The Machine Shop, a cool arcade about four blocks north of our Tim Horton's.

    There was a period of about three years where I actually lost track of Kelly.

    I posted a lengthy entry a couple of days ago, but it has disappeared.

    Maybe it was too long? Should I slice it in two? It's 994 words...

    Hoping Tom or someone! can steer me right on this.

    I can't recall the first time I met Kelly. It would have been in the mid-60s.
