Ars Longa Vita Brevis

It's been 38 years since I've seen my college buddy Jack. We used to play together in a band called The Amazing Jackalopes in Claremore, Oklahoma. In the years that have passed, Jack has stayed with his drumming, performing with the likes of Marty Stuart and BJ Thomas. Now a Nashville resident, Jack was in Hot Springs for the 76th annual Old Grandad AA Arkansas meeting. Sober now 31 years, Jack looks great. Seriously, who wouldn't want to tweak those cheeks?

The Amazing Jackalopes circa 1977 (l-r): Drummer Jack Propps, Bassist Jeff Donachy, Keyboardist Brian Wilson, Guitarist Jeff Hett and Guitarist Jack Clift.

Just a word of warning to my friends who visit Hot Springs... You WILL be photographed.
