I have no freaking idea, Mickie.
There are parts I still remember very clearly and others that are slowly disappearing behind the gauze of years gone by.
But, wow, what a great memory.

Wish I could have been there. But I know what you mean about that gauze, I seem to spend a lot of time trying to retrieve things from behind it.

I knew Rockin' Robin, and that was it. I made some friends that night, too, which is the coolest part of this thread (for me) and of this site.

Of course, just being able to tell the people that I worked with that I'd actually spent a couple of hours in the presence of King Dan, was.............well..........dreamy!!
