Some of the best times are when Fred taught Woody how to drink his glass of Brandy every night. Tried to do it as much as they could in Yuma and then they did it by phone calls during the summer. And sometimes it was more than one glass. Rest in peace Fred and we will see you again one day so have the Brandy ready.
