john and i first became friends in elementary school when i took piano lessons from his mum.  we lived close to each other and got along fine.  eventually we both ended up with paper routes.  we both had 3 speed english bikes, and, for us, bikes were freedom.   somewhere along the way we both got interested in sailboats.  we learned about sailing by crewing out of Crescent Sail Yacht Club.     because we both were young and in good shape (see bicycling)  we starting taking trips.   first to friend Marjorie Beattys folks farm.  then we combined our two favourites, bicycling and sailing.   we added saddlebags and camping gear on our bikes .    we rode from our houses to Port Huron for the start of the Port Huron to Mackinaw Sailboat race.   then rode on to Ludington State  Park for overnight camping.   we watched the start of the race and then next day tried to walk.  we were both really sore.     another memory involves me, john and his tuba.  i had picked him up  at high school in my foks ford station wagon.  he had his tuba.  we found out if we put the back seat down and opened the tailgate john could seranade the folks in cars around us.  we went up and down Mack Ave with john playing away.                      after highschool we went in different directions .    there is a song "its just miles, its not distance that separates us".      we have always been friends and i will miss him a bunch.    where ever he is, the tuba section just got a bunch better.
