Well, Jim would haved turned the big 70 today. I don't believe he would want to think about it too much. I feel he would enjoy his wife, children and grandchildren being around him though.
I can tell you that whoever Jim would have married, she would have to be totally dedicated to him and have the ability to give him endless love, patience and understanding. He really did not like confrontation. He knew how to handle himself in those situations. But it could take a lot of out of him.
Happy birthday to a great person and friend.
I'm about to go out and buy and bottle or two of champagne and a little cake of some kind in honor of the day, but while I'm still sober I have to respond to this.
Tex, I'm totally bewildered by your claim that Jim "really did not like confrontation." If that's the case, what was he doing with Pamela all those years? The woman who regularly threw him and his books out of the house? The woman who didn't take any crap from him ever?
Good grief, the man i knew couldn't abide anyone who wouldn't stand up to him and tell him in no uncertain terms when he was being a butthead!
