    Oh Brother where art thou! I sat at day break thinking about you and cried and then I thought of your one eared elephant and laughed. We sure had some good times together Bobby Baltzer acting like a couple of eighth grade goof -ball boys. You sure made my life more enjoyable since I met you. Say good night Gracie
