The other central figure in my book.

Gordy & Bolo the dog, circa 1980

Gordy with all the essentials for work – a pair of pliers, a jack knife, and a snot rag. Couple these with a can of Copenhagen and an amazing German Sheppard dog who rode tall on the shop truck tool box, and there was hardly a job that Gordy would not tackle. The phrase There is more than one way to skin a cat” remains etched in my brain forever. I credit Gordy for teaching me problem solving skills and unconventional solutions.
