Saturday Night…: I checked my email when we got back and found that my younger brother Rick had found Roger Grey, our old friend from Houston, on Facebook, who was now living and working in Montana. We had a chuckle about that and toyed with the idea of moving our next reunion north. We opened more cigars and his fifth of Glenfiddich around five that evening and we dove back into talk and music. What we had to say to one another is unimportant to anyone but us. What stands out from my recall of Saturday night was David’s enjoyment of the eclectic play list on my laptop, so I present a small sampling:
After we gave up on the Glenfiddich I invited David to my wake, to be held at some as yet undetermined later date, at Jameson’s Roaring Donkey, stepson Kelton’s bar in Petaluma…
…then I played this incredible song, “Keep Me in Your Heart for Awhile,” the last song that Warren Zevon recorded before his death:
With that we retired and I told my old friend that he and Kelton had taught me more than any other people I had ever met and that they were the two best men that I have ever known.
