They said he would never amount to anything.

Said he didn’t have any talent.

ME, Brian and Edgar

No discipline.

No commitment.

No chance.

I told them, “Survival is a talent.”

    Did you go to the Holy Name event? I missed it as I had an event @ Regis that evening. I did visit Father Larry a few weeks ago; we were both @ Cathedral College @ the same time. I got together with a bunch of guys Friday night @ Farrell’s: Gerard Conlon, Kenny Nolan, John Hederman, Jim Hayes & Billy Bayer. Jimmy Houlihan was bartending. It was good to see them all.

      I did not go. Would love to get back more but with my job, family, etc. it becomes harder and harder.

      You mention some good guys in your post.

      Jimmy Houlihan is the best. They don’t make ’em any better than that guy.
