MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT ALCANTAR
Armando Realyvasquez, George Padilla, Ted Vasquez, Curtis Jackson, Me, Danny Vasquez

Hola all,
I am sharing a couple of photos that will explain the absence of some members of the brown table and my own from the PBA meeting last week.
We are enjoying some cold beers at a bar in Puerto Vallarta and a great view of the sunset.

Leroy, Thanks for finding Bill’s extra Farsider email list. Appreciate it. Just to let you know I’m doing fine (knock on wood), I still got all my marbles, although I’m not sure if the deck is still full.

I have a story about a guy who graduated from San Mateo High back in the day. From there he went to College of Pomona, then received a Rhodes scholarship and went to Oxford to study philosophy – smart guy. When he graduated he decided to take a different track than teaching, and went into the songwriting / song singing business. Over the years too many bars and nightclubs, honky-tonks, all nighters, drugs and alcohol lead him down that winding path near the confused bottom. By the time he was 36 a transformation was definitely needed – ready or not; like it or not. Have a listen to the rest of the story of what happened next. Kris Kristofferson years later in his own words…

GARY MADISON – Went last Sunday and met Mark Goings at his beautiful home in Pacific Grove.
We drove down beautiful highway 1 then 101 and the 405 and had dinner with son Taylor and his
wife Lexi in Huntington Beach. Spent the night with Mark’s friend and my new friend Gary T.

Monday we hit the freeway and went to Rosarita Beach for huge lobster lunch. We made it to Lake
Arrowhead in the dark. Too much freeway but always a great time riding with Mark and new friend
Gary T on his hauling ass Suzuki power cruiser.
