My apologies for not writing a post about Cav for some years. Between work, family and daily life, I barely have any free time these days.
That being said, I'm going to try to keep this thread alive each year, and make some infrequent appearances. I still have lots of memories of my friend, and more than a few tales to share.
Here's a small one. When we were in grade school, Cav's family lived beside one of our classmates. As it happened, Cav's window basically faced her room and...well, you can sort of guess how many times his eyes occasionally gazed off into a particular direction. She was quite pretty, so who could blame him?
I was curious to (ahem) observe this situation for myself. So naturally, we peer out his window. There she was, with a couple of her attractive friends. Within a minute or two, one of them noticed two young boys staring (or ogling, if you wish) in their general direction. They smiled right back at us -- and we hid for cover! Foolishly, we checked back within a short period of time...and there they were, guarding the window with big smiles on their faces!
Having been caught red-handed, I don't remember ever doing that again with Cav. And if we did, I'd like to think that we accomplished our goal with more intelligence -- and less tongue wagging!
Ah, childhood memories.
Take care, folks.
