Hey, alive, am I -- Who? Jim Hawthione.

Thanx for your comments. It was also my hope that the Besser association would be an ongoing reality as I love films and shall never forget the time I took an off-ramp adjacent to a drive in movie theatre and there I was doing that double take on the huge screen. Talk about timing, it appeared that my eyes followed me during the fleeting moments passing by. Somewhat scary, seeing yourself looking and following you while wheeling by.

Movies forever!
