Too many memories to list but always looked forward to visits. Danny was a terrific pool player. Wr spent a few hours at CueNique in Madison, Wi with brother Tim looking on.
He was along on a first adventure by me to Devils Lake State Park. We had a helluva good time skinny dipping through the rec buildings while trying not to get caught.
Visited Monterey , Carmel by the sea with Danny as our guide.
