I would never been able to 'memorize' all the poetry 
in Ms. McMinn's English IV class without Gary's help! When we were about eleven or twelve in one of our P. E. Classes, we were paired up by height for a boxing exhibition at the gym where we played high school basketball. Gary was my opponent. Realizing I was probably outmatched, my father took me to see Joe Benson who had the Texaco station east of town because He had been a very fine boxer in the Army. With professional coaching, I thought I was super ready for my match against Gary. But when the bell rang, Gary was not impressed with my proper stance and proceeded to hit me with such a flurry of punches that the match had to be stopped for my protection!
