I will always remember having breakfast with Hal, Frank Beebe and Frank Bond at the California Hawking Club's meet in Bakersfield in 2000! At Frank Bond's invitation. We spent the better part of two hours chatting and sharing stories.

That was almost 20 years ago. All three of those gentlemen are gone now and I'm finding myself smiling and feeling sad at the same time. I was sitting among three legends! I wish I had a photo of our time together. However, that small moment in time is forever burned into my memory!
