There is not an hour that goes by that I am not thinking of him. :(

I got stung by a bee on my foot today (was hiding in my sandal). It reminded me of the time that we were heading to a Red Rock event and we were leaving Mesquite in the wee hours of the morning, before sunrise. I had my window rolled down, all buckled up and ready to go, and I put my arm out on the window ledge of my bright yellow 914. Apparently, there was a bee that liked it too....which just happens to be on said door ledge. <_<
So, being stung on the under arm and we were all ready to go when this happened, Ron gets out of his 914, walks over by the main entrance and grabs a handful of mud where there were some sprinklers on and lifts up my arm and slaps the mud on the bee sting and says "There, that should take the sting away. Now lets get on the road before it gets too damn hot. "

:rolleyes:
Thanks for the wonderful memories Howie!

The sudden loss has almost but paralyzed me. I can barely even function most days. Yet I hear him yelling at me even now to "knock it off and get back to work." The rides to and from work are the hardest right now. How I make it to the destinations I sometimes dont know. We would talk every morning and evening on these drives. Unless of course his grand kids were coming over. :wub:

So many smilies here were created for or named for people from the 914 community, usually from an incident or just explains who they are. All because we have gotten together and shared a common interest. Lets never lose that. :group:

"You take care now. Talk to ya later. Bye."
Thanks for the wonderful memories Howie!

Somewhere on this BBS there is a picture of SLITS wearing a beige clubNARP hat.

I can't find it.

I heard that, a long time ago, the hat was provided to him anonymously by another member.

He was notorious for sending free parts to members in need.

This little video clip was taken by Ron's good old flip phone.
This was at his work when his nephew*** ehhh hemm*** Greg called code enforcement for an Anthrax scare because an enveloped with some "powder" in it was mailed to the shop. :lol:

You can hear SLITS total sarcasm and stirring-up-trouble voice.

Lets just say that he was the only one that ended up in handcuffs and sitting in the police car that day. :cop:
