    Andy, my friend, I am all too happy to express those well-deserved kind words to you. Any man who can constantly make such beautiful references to his Beloved Wife deserves a lot of credit. You've done just that, showing that it's all about the Love, and I was all too happy to read this.

    I've mentioned Phil Rizzuto before to you, since I believe that in his Hall of Fame speech, he rambled on to many wild cheers about his wife Cora, his love of Italian pastry, etc. It was very obvious that his long-time wife was truly the love of his life, and he was unhesitant in giving her full credit for his happiness.

    I first visited this site upon hearing that there were even people there who saw Joe DiMaggio play. Both Al (Sixty One) and yourself were the elder schooled Yankee fans.

    DiMaggio ended his career in 1951, and you started your Yankee fandom in 1946-1947. This meant you'd seen the end of Joe D's career, the entirety of Yogi, who I believe was your favorite Yankee, and all of Mickey's years as well.

    When we met at the parking lot of the Forum Party around 2003, we spoke 1-on-1, you listened carefully to me. I said that this is a man who chooses his words wisely, is very intelligent, and has lots of love in his heart.

    My focus has since shifted from your being a very, very long-time Yankee fan who's made us all proud, to your being a very beautiful human being.

    Thank you very much, Andy, for being who you are. Your life has been lived very wonderfully, and you've shared this with us.

    You make me blush. Speaking of AL (sixty one) I haven't heard from him in a long time He lives a handful of miles from me.


    In noting Phil and Cora, How can we forget Yogi and Carmen, also two devoted couples who are members of the Yankee family

    Andy, I thought this deserved a bump. Today marks 35 years that Mrs Maynerd and I have been married. That seems a long time. For you and Nancy, that must seem like child's play.

    Congrats, Andy! That's a helluva run! For my wife and I to reach that milestone we'd have to go another 40 years which would put me at 86 years old. YIKES!

    I remember! Amazing how long ago that was now. I have fond memories of those days.
