Rick Martin and Bill. Rick spent the day with us.

Larry threw a party in this bar in May - for the visitors to his Hotboots web site. This we joked was 'very Chicago' - The el going by and Wrigley Field in the same photo. The ball game is still going on - and there's quite a carnival going on in the streets, too. The el is, well, 'elevated'. A look up at the scoreboard.
On October 20, 1976, we met in this restaurant, Sawa's Old Warsaw. - We were delighted to see it was still there. - Web pages about it say it is now 'an institution'. - Does this mean we are now an institution? It was fitting that Rick - our longest time friend to know us both - could join us. We had to pose in front of the sign! - The menu and internal decor were exactly the same as we remembered. This is our friend Mark Simon from the late 1970s. - He hadn't changed a bit! And this is our friend Noel Williams from the late 1970s. - He had long blond hair back then and was skinny as a rail. - He had changed so much we wouldn't have known him.
Noel's pet.  A rabbit! Bill, April (Noel's wife), Noel, and Mark. Bill, Noel, Mark, and Larry. When we got to Bill's sister Lucy's in Iowa City - they drug out this newspaper article - and suggested we all go get lost in a corn maze! The corn was taller than we were - so you couldn't see over it. - We joked that only Iowans would go out in a cornfield - at midday when it was sunny and 90 degrees.
