During one such gala, an attractive young woman happened to catch my eye. But she was far too stunning to not pursue. She had luxurious blonde hair that danced on her shoulders whenever she would turn her head and long, sexy legs that I would have given anything to spend an evening in between.
Summoning up all my courage and finishing off my Manhattan, I approached her from across the crowded ballroom. I awkwardly introduced myself and asked her what her name was.

It was originally a blue and silver duco with an oval Chicago badge which is now missing.

Art and I grew up and went to school with both Bob and Vicki. We knew Slats since we were young kids and even hung out at the upholstry shop at times. We were dating and he used to tell us that we sat so close together in the car – he had to look to tell if it was one or both of us. Slats used to stop at my Grandpa Mahaffey’s farm and chat with him about raising pigs and farm stuff. Our boys Jerry and Jody went to school with Bob and Judy’s boys.
