Once while in high school. Henry and the gang was laughing because I had to drive a station wagon. One of those two Tone wood sides one. I felt out of place because we loved teasing each other. That is what friends did those days. Anyway, we all decided to go to the beach on a school day and all the beautiful girls jumped into Henry’s sports car. I think it was a malibu. Leaving me by myself in this ugly station wagon. Henry put so many girls and some guys in the car that his shocks broke and they were stranded in the middle of the block. I came by with my station wagon, following right behind him and everyone jumped in my vehicle. I saved the day, the beach was fun, and Henry, if I remember right, left the car there and went with us… I just loved that guy and will always, Cherish those precious years.
