i posted a memory for Mark Reid but this site isn't set up to send notifications when you post on someone else's site. I don't know html well enough so it could take a lot of new code and links to make that happen and I don't want to create more work. I'm glad this site is here and I recommend sending in a few bucks to support it. (I believe I had to send a check. Perhaps there could be a link to send in donations to for support?) Anyway, here is what I wrote about Mark Reid:
On this quiet Sunday morning my mind has drifted to Mark Reid. I don’t know of anyone who did not like him and appreciate his sense of humor. He was a funny guy.
One of my best memories was in…I think it was 8thgrade. (Hey, it’s been a while.) We had to debate the pros and cons of smoking pot. I was given the honor of extolling its virtues and he had to demonize it.
On the morning of the debate I stopped outside the Dearborn Drive-in, out front where the sign was, and amongst the shrubs and whatever was growing there, smoked a joint with some friends. (I thought at the time it would give me insight and bolster my argument. It didn’t.)
I don’t remember the outcome of the debate. (Hey, I was high, what can I say?) But a few years later Mark and I would be sharing a joint at some party or other and I’m glad I got to know him and appreciate his love of Monty Python and more.
by the way, a while back I had the opportunity to read my book, Where Does Time Go? at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena. It's a short book. But a great book.
There's a link on youtube.
I am so sorry you lost your dad at such a young age. I hope you can find more about your dad from the great people on this site. Good luck
Jay ran with the Big Dawgs-the "In-Crowd"! He had it all.....Rich parents (They owned the Boars Head, the most exclusive restaurant in Dearborn Hgts., and the trailer park at the corner of Beech Daly and Warren), money (He ran the parking concession in the family restaurants parking lot-BIG bucks for him and his pals!), CARS (He'd smash one up and have another new one within the WEEK!), girls, and TONS of friends. Everyone was envious of the guy. Funny, though.... right now I all I can think about is the poem "Richard Corey"..... .
My thoughts and prayers are with you my good friend.
Danny was one of my best friends in high school....Every morning before school, three of us-me, Danny and Ron Gruenwald ("Fred" to some) would meet at the Bronze Wheel for breakfast.We'd go out to Camp Dearborn, and other places together...he attended my wedding, showing up in platform shoes and a dark blue velour tuxedo! He had a huge head of long curly hair which made him look like a rock star! After Ron passed away, however, things changed between us....I think it may have had something to do with me reminding him of Fred and our times together. In any event, we drifted apart despite my efforts to stay connected. I just learned of his passing recently when I visited this site again after a long absence from here. I miss you Dann-o!
