Also remember the many weekends overs stimulated from being @ the Rockaway Mall, 3 hours @ Primetime Playhouse , another 25 hours @ the AMC across the way, and finally SIZZLER. We were two classy guys back then. Also remember never wanting to leave your house after long weekends, playing Missile Command on Atari. - Much love to you and Romina in your future together." - Jim
