Kind of Disappear

This is a phone message I got from John Detrick. To get the full effect, you have to image hearing it in John's "just us furry creatures awe shucks" accent.

I hope this is Tom Pears' phone. This is JD in Columbus Ohio calling. And, yep, we had that board meeting and no one had any objections. Of course it's understood that there won't be any pressure put on anybody at the reunion to buy these books. As far as remembrances or stuff to add to it...I can't really recall much, except one time when Bates was driving Bate's Bouncing Buggy. We were to take the boys to Boothbay to go out to Monhegan Island. He would always stop in the town, it was on the Kenebeck, I can't think of the name of the town, maybe if I looked on a map I could find it, But he would park the bouncing buggy loaded with boys on the main street and go into see his old buddy Hurley Durgen who was a Maine Guide and was up in years and I think in a Veterans type home. I would be riding with him and he would say "I'll be back in 5 minutes " and it would be about 25 or 30 minutes and the boys would be climbing over each other and punching each other. Oh well that's the way it was back then. And then when we got out to Monhegan Island, Bates would kind of disappear. Guess he had some friends out there he hung out with. That's about it, alrighty, I'll catch you later, over and out, bye
