Steve and I were good friends for a very brief period--the summer of 1967.   With a couple of other like-minded folk (who will not be named in this narrative;   y'all will have to out yourselves, if you dare), we tested various limits (also herein unnamed).   Me, I had one of my usual terrible summer jobs--as a clerk at Skillern's drug store on East Rosedale--and, after I got off work, Steve would pick me up in his car and take me away.  He was smart and witty, wonderful fun, and always up for anything.

Our fun-filled summer idyll came to a premature, abrupt end when one of our parties got somewhat out of hand.  The next day:  one of us got shipped off to military school and another got exorcised by a priest.    Steve was grounded--forever, more or less--and forbidden to see me (the ostensible ring-leader and preternatural bad influence;  though, with my usual good luck, I walked away, scot-free, from everything). 

Steve was a sweet, kind and generous friend.    I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to spend more time together.
