needs a bit more research…so here is
a short bit nostalgia…remember those days?
EPISODE 256 LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL…AUGUST 1963 ERIC ARRANGED STAG AT FARM
What a grand time we had that late August evening in 1963 when my brother Eric, my best msn, arranged a stag for
all of our friends at our farm. We drank a lot of beer but not so much that there was any danger. Just lots of laughs.
The only concern was when Bill Doyle disappeared and was found enmeshed in a forsythia bush…staggering. It Was
his birthday and he promised his mom he would not drink until he turned 21. So he had a couple of beers and
made up for lost time. No, he was not driving.
Ron Saunders came over from the farm across the road. He did not know anyone but that did not stop him from
mixing with the crowd. About 1 a.m. I remember carrying him back to his house across the road. He was quite
happy. We probably had about 20 to 30 friends arrive, maybe more. All done in good taste as you
can see in the picture with Eric and the special sign he constructed.
Life in the 1960’s was good. A grand time to get married.
