"How could anyone forget Ray Smith?" someone said.
"He always sang Elvis's Hard Headed Woman, I said, "At every play-party!"
Several people began singing: "Well, a hard headed woman, a soft hearted man, been the cause of trouble ever since the world began...!"
Believe it or not, Ray shot to fame a couple of years later with Rockin' Little Angel.
"Remember that hayride Sophomore year," someone said, "When SJ smooched so much that her lips bled?"
There was almost total silence, and then everyone burst out laughing. (Fortunately, SJ was not there!)
Before the evening was over, Billy, Jackie and Buddy, and Chuck told me they read my blog. (Thanks, y'all!)
"Trouble is," Billy said, "You've quit posting!"
I'll do better, Billy. Promise!
Ah, the days of play-parties, hayrides and rock & roll! There are no friends like old friends; no memories like shared memories. And I appreciate them more and more as the years go by.
