A third post today. Was able to meet up with my old pal George (a competitive cyclist, do you think?) who has lived in California for near to 30 years now. We still stay in touch, and it just happened that he was competing in a race in San Diego today. Although he lives way north of here, the festival was on his way home, so he stopped by for awhile. Believe it or not, George was the original vocalist for "A Couple of Joes Trio". Our funniest moment from that era, perhaps, was when Joe instructed George to say to Joe on mic "Gee Joe, your hair's getting thin", to which Joe would respond, "Well who wants fat hair?". Bad, I know, but made much better when George misread the memo and said: "Gee Joe, you're getting thin!". No one could talk for awhile.

vHey, I remember this guy! (After all it is the short term memory that goes first.) I remember back in teh 80's seeing George on 42 North in South Jersey. As I recall he was nearly keeping up with the cars going 50 mph. Excellent cyclist he was and apparently is once again!
