Skipper, my life long friend. I first met Skip when I was 11 or 12 - We moved to Cardiff, Md. Skip lived with his uncle Dale Watson and his g-parents, Dorothy and Dave Watson. I remember being at their house just about two blocks up main st from us . Sometimes Dale's sister Pauline would stop in. I think Dales' mother was working at the time. Arouind 1959 , 60, 61 we rode bicycles , sometimes Skip would build his own. We each had wagons and would race them down the hill on sidewalk. Yes, as you might guess, Skip built his own wagon, old boards nailed together, lawn mower wheels, and his was the fastest. I really miss you old buddy. Long and precious memories. I pray God's blessings on Susie and kids.
