My good friend and former neighbor Jim and his wife Lois in their trailer home in the early 1950s, when he was stationed in Florida as a radioman in the Navy. He loved motorcycles, hot rods, music, cats, exotic birds, and most of all people. Talking to him was guaranteed to make you smile. Godspeed Jim!
