Sandy Paton Happy! Jan 22 (Sandy Paton) (48) RE: Happy! Jan 22 (Sandy Paton) 23 Jan 07

I'm only recognizing SBDs these years -- Significant Digit Birthdays. These, generally speaking, are those ending in zeros. If I'm still around for another two years, Spaw, I'd be delighted to have you initiate a fresh SBD message.
    Where in Kansas are you, Lin? I always stop by Salina on my drives to the left coast to see old Berkeley friends and my Bay Area family. Hafta check out the changes in the old town since they kicked me out of Salina High in 1943 (or was it 1944?). My best friend from those dark ages now lives in Topeka, so I'm less inclined to stop over for long.
    I'll get back to Seattle some day, Don, but it'll be tough to observe the destruction to my most memorable hangouts. The Coffee Corral is gone? (Coffee for a dime; seven cents if you drank it black!) Probably replaced by a Starbucks. Are the houseboats on Portage Bay still dumping their wastes right into the water on which they float? Surely not in these more enlightened times. That's what we did so thoughtlessly when I rented one of them fifty-four years ago. Hard to imagine it now!
    We'll get to one of your house concerts, Sinsull, as soon as we can find someone to run the bloody business while we're away. This being an big industry mogul has its drawbacks. Yeah, our sons could do it, but they've both got REAL jobs.
    Kidding aside, kids: Thanks for your good wishes. Gettin' old really bites, but it's less distressing when there are friends to ease the pain.
