Great memories. I too was somewhere in the building for Shane’s 58.9.

I think that might have been the first time I met you, Clive, though we may not have known it and … I noticed Shane more than anyone else that day in boyhood 🙂

10 years, ha ha. Imagine what would have happened if she pretended, say, to have been held up at gunpoint….. 🙂

Is the movie “Dawn!” any good?
