A Sunny Day on “The Hill”

Yesterday was a great day for me in Boulder, Colorado where my friend George “Doc” Krieger invited me to join DJ Pat Downey and former Astronaut drummer Jim Gallagher for lunch at The Sink on “The Hill” next to the University of Colorado campus.  Great memories from Jim, recalling many of his adventures from the glory years of The Astronauts, up through 1966 when Jim departed for Vietnam – never to resume his musical career again.  Jim told me that he has had and was still having a wonderful life, loving the past but looking forward to the future and always enjoying the present!
