I've been called crazy and Spud could be a wild man would be the simplest explanation of why we got along so well and laughed together so much, but like all things there are usually two reasons for everything, one that sounds good and the real reason.
'Wild and crazy' sounds good and it was certainly true a lot of the time but Janice, 'Carolina 'dammit' dolls, South Carolina football and 'fish sammiches' made by Jamie or Damon at Jayne's place of business during football season had something to do with it, too.
Man had friends, I was lucky to be just one of 'em.
Play some Bob Marley Janice - Spuds dancing in heaven.
