CJ and I were good friends for over 50 years starting with trips to Staten Island for a drink to Bernie's Tip Toe Inn. We lost touch some when I moved back East from Arizona but good friends don't ever really lose touch.  He was one of a kind and will certainly be missed by me.  CJ RIP and God bless.

I'm spending tonight catching up on emails and was surprised when I got to notice of Charlie Jaegers passing.
Charlie and I were good friends all through the sixties and hearing the news, sad as it was, brought back many memories and elicited a few big grins and chuckles.

Early sixties; We rode down to Florida with my folks and while there decided we'd strike out on our own. We rented a new Pontiac convertible. We spent ALL our cash on that car and were eatin hot dogs, but didn't care, we were stylin'.

Then there was the road trip to Fort Lauderdale for 62 spring break. Three of us, Artie Skula, Charlie and me in a 57 Corvette.  

Later sixties we were room mates at the Jersey shore. We had matching 1965 BSA Hornet motorcycles. Mine black, his blue. We used to make the run from Manasquan to Woodbridge up and down rt36 like it was a trip around the block. I recall the night Charlie hit a deer, suffered a major case of road rash, and for the next couple of weeks several of the Woodbridge girls all nursed him back to health.

Also around that time Charlie became owner of "The Jaguar" bar on rt 35. It was in South Amboy on the southbound side and as you all may recall, that stretch of highway had MORE than its share of good time bars. Charlie, me, Roger Smith, Mike Codd, and a crazy group of biker/hippies spent many an afternoon there raising hell. Wild times by 60's standards. Pretty mild in 2014.

We lost touch somewhere in the seventies. Charlie, Mike Codd, Goody all left NJ, we had all grown up (a little), and moved on.

Even though I have of late developed a serious case of C.R.S. I'll never forget the good times we shared.

Hope you can find a Coca Cola with the fizz removed up there, Buddy.
