I will pass along the good word, Van.

Rich has a new life since he retired from GE and his kids graduated from their respective colleges. These days he teaches physics at a Richmond area high school. That of course covers any benefits he needs and it keeps him off the streets. Word is they like him at the high school since those kinds of teachers are in short supply and he has a way of being very creative in a "Mythbusters" kind of way. He might be found out on the football field with his class firing a potato gun across the field.

He's pretty much retired both from Uechi and from his MCMAP activities. I occasionally see him doing something like an elliptical trainer at the gym. He's leaner and grayer, but eminently less tense and happier. I keep him up to date on everything.

Yeah, I actually did a lot of what's depicted in the lower right picture.
A couple hours in that third floor Norwood dojo in the summer made many of us long for the fifty cent drafts at a local dive around the corner at the end of the night.

Kevin,

That was the 'Village Inn' around the corner. Not really a dive, and always full of beautiful women.

I'm certain there was a little watering hole behind your building filled with locals and a jar of pickled eggs to go with the cheap 'Gansetts.
Bars filled with beautiful women were above my pay grade back in those days. :lol:
