I guess he thought that was funny so he later asked if I wanted to be in the 4th of July parade with him the next day. I had breakfast with him and his daughter, and then went in the parade. Just a great memory for sure!
That is a great memory! Born in the great state of IOWA! In high school we had to write a 10 page paper in history class about a great American. I picked the Duke and ended up writing a 30 page paper! Extremely jealous of your memory...
