Sh-Boom


Last weekend was “Family Day” at SIUE, where my older daughter is in school. Since it's just across town, we went over for a bit, with her little brother. Along with the car show and inflatable games for the kids, they had this 50's/60's band that was playing: Sh-Boom. They were pretty good, even the semi-silly Blues Brothers bit. The car show had 20-30 cars, from 30's classics to a PT Cruiser. The highpoint for me, though, was an orange 1971 Ford Maverick! That brings back memories, one of friends in high school had one back in 1976 or so. Not quite "just like it", because GaryW's was well worns 30 years ago, and probably never looked as good as the one at the car show!! Wonder what ever happened to GaryW?? Haven't seen or heard from him in at least 20 years, probably more.

He was the first one of us to have his own car, and we beat the hell out of that thing. I ran into Gary about 15 or so years ago in Busy Beaver. He had a software company of some sort. He had a wife and at least one kid. His family moved to Indiana Twp. (just off Dorseyville Rd. near Fairview Elementary), and I think his sister still lives there. I just Googled him, and he still has the software company. That's all I know.
