I looked hard at your pic because I served with a Truman named Randy...he was crazier than me!

Hah! "Truman"'s a nickname from guys I served with.

As it was explained to me: In any conflict - from a mild verbal exchange over beer, to expedited exchanges of munitions, I could always be counted on to be "the first guy to drop the F-Bomb".

Besides, you're WAY older than me. I do have a brother named Randy, though.

Ah, that's it. That's the thing.... I meet all these people and can't remember exactly where. The Fort Worth bike crowd is good people, and growing so fast you can't keep track of who's who.
