Back in the days when Mudcat was in better health he's come to Ft Myers for the Fantasy Camp.
One year I had the privelidge to sit and talk with him for a good hour. He's quite the guy. He told alot
of stories. One was something like this: His daughter called and told him her his granddaughter was sneeking out at night through the window and wouldn't stop. He said, ok, I'll take care of it. So that night he took a folding chair with him, drove over and parked down the street. He set up the chair down the side of the house with her window on it and sat. Sure enough, finally, out she came.
She never tried that again! His book, The Black Aces is well worth reading. I paid him for one and he signed it and sent it to me. Really a nice guy. And I'm so happy I got to attend the '65 WS, and then eventually meet him.
