Hey! Yes, I do remember you, man! :-)

Re: Gary. I was in touch with him very briefly through Facebook about… yikes, something like 10 years ago…? But he hardly ever used it, at least back then, and so I lost touch with him. I presume he’s still out in BC, and his sons are big, strapping Gary-types, no longer the little guys we used to see run and play around the dojo.
