The afternoon rap session was followed with dinner at the Holiday Inn after the arrival of Ward Phillips. After years in England, Ward has returned to the Atlanta area. The stories and harassment continued though dinner. Harassment tends to increase proportionally with time spent together and the amount of libation consumed. As we approached the end of dinner it was as though our relationships never changed from 39-years ago. Good friends are hard to come by, making it really rewarding to have friendships that have lasted this long. After dinner we went to the back porch and continued talking and drinking. We were glad to see Bud Oakley join us … bring his keen whit! Always ready to drop some political bomb and stand on the sideline and watch the fireworks. The evening lasted pretty late, well as best as we could recall the next day.
