Thanks for the appreciation, but I don't remember doing any "shorts" and didn't see Don signing any, except for that one cute girl. Who was she? I confess designing the shirts, but the screening and printing honors go to Derek Poertner and John Snider of Snider Graphics, who pretty much donated their time and effort to get them done for us. I also have to thank Jimmy Ray, who saved the day. He picked up the SAC signs for me that I couldn't even shoe horn into my car. Jack Rick Tejera wrote: > Jack Jones.
