Hey Louie, we got together this year at a nice place in Upland called Charlie's Stars & Stripes to tip a few for you. Great food, great drinks, great company, and a hot waitress who was also really nice and put up with us old street dawgs. We had your photo on the table so you wouldn't feel left out. It was me, Nick Savala, Jimmy Perkins, Cliff Armas, and Leonard on the phone from Canada. Eighteen years now. When we hit twenty years, we'll need to do something outrageous.
