Sad, Ron is a class act for sure. But to give the kid a break, I don't think I would recognize Blackie and I have met him, but that was 25 years ago and between him changing and my mind failing, I don't think I could pick him out of a crowd. Not unless he was driving his golf cart with the Lincoln grille on it.
I think it was a Lincoln grille that it had at least, again, there is my memory.
