    Michael had something going on with fluid pressuring his brain... he was in a lot of pain. I last saw him at the BMW RA rally in Woodstock, VA and we had a good long talk.... but I spoke with him on the phone regularly. We’ve been friends ever since the Morganton, NC rally in 1996. He was an innovator and a real Yankee!

    We’re all richer for having known him.
    Can you say Tuaca? I knew you could.

    These are the people (including you and Paul) who formed my first impressions of the MOA when I joined 30 or so years ago.

    And familiarize yourself with what melanoma and other forms of skin cancer look like. The most common form of cancer is skin cancer.

    I just got home an hour ago from visiting with my dermatologist. He removed a basal cell carcinoma from my left arm. I told him I got way too much sun in my younger days as a caddy in jr. high and high school, and working as a construction engineer on road and bridge construction, and so on. He told me the basal cell on my arm was small. I told him I have gotten very good at spotting them; this is no. 10. I spot them early and get them taken care of.

    I lost a good friend to melanoma. My younger brother had melanoma but it was caught early and easily cured. Catch it early and it is curable. If you don't, it will lead to needless tragedy.
