Crazy but true smokeytom era story:
A good friend with a vintage BMW motorcycle and trailer for transport was ST’s travel mate from Long Island to Florida in my 1984 Subaru Brat (loved that pickup with two reverse facing seats on the truckbed!). They set out on a brisk January day and had no problems on the route via two bridges to the NJ Turnpike entrance. Problem #1 faced them there...high wind advisory restricted trailers on the Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway. The only route available was good old US 1, a road with traffic lights the entire 100 miles or so they would be traversing on through NJ. ST’s buddy said, “No way I’m doing this straight!” That was a pre-cellphone era so he ordered drivertom to stop at the next pay phone. A quick call was made to a buddy in Manhattan for a green score (actually kinda purple and gold from Maui). They switched seats because ST hated city streets driving, especially with a trailer.
On some midtown side street, ST waited for the score being done upstairs in an office building. The buddy returned with a bag of said green/purple/gold material and a pack of Bambu rolling papers. Driver buddy ordered ST passenger to twist one up as we made our way south to the Marloes Horst Memorial Holland Tunnel. ST’s first roll was interrupted by biker buddy saying, “Roll a real one, not a pencil!” so an extra Bambu sheet was moistened and attached to the first one. Upon completion of this task while entering said tunnel, ST fired that sucker up, took his average size draw but did not anticipate the expansion caused by said fine stuff. Trying to hold it in, ST failed and began a large cough. This angered biker buddy who said, “Don’t waste that!” ST handed the twistee to him and tried to reset his lungs. Driver buddy also then took a large draw that resulted in a cloud of smoke exiting his lungs in a coughing fit. Now, many of you know ST very well enough to know he lives by a code that includes the clause, “turnabout is fair play!” You may then guess what words smokeytom might have said to his buddy through the very befogged two-seat cabin we were now sitting in.
The rest of the trip was smooth and uneventful. After visiting his folks in Orlando, ST and biker buddy (a part time teaching pro) spent a week of tennis clinics at Harry Hopman’s place in the St. Petersburg area before heading back.

Robert Klein’s funny take on an imaginary chase through The Holland Tunnel. Which contestant do you prefer:
Paris to Amsterdam specifically because of the Euro guy clutching a cuppa under Big Brother's octopussy gaze and the Teutonic guy's Lacanian psychoanalysis behind the pillar.
The world-famous hit by American singer-songwriter Don McLean (b. 1945) is officially called ‘Vincent’, but is more often referred to by the opening line 'Starry, Starry Night'.
McLean says he was reading a biography of Vincent van Gogh when he stumbled upon the idea of composing a song about him. The song became an homage to the artist and his work.
McLean understands Vincent’s struggle. That he wasn’t crazy, but that he was afflicted by illness. 'Now I understand what you tried to say to me, and how you suffered for your sanity'.
If you listen carefully, you’ll hear that McLean not only sings about Starry Night, but also other paintings by Vincent.
Train from Paris to Amsterdam as I did a few times,
or ferry from England to Amsterdam like Liam?
Oasis recall drunken ferry fight in new ‘Supersonic’ clip – watch
“As the fight broke out all I remember was it was a bit Benny Hill," Liam says.
The boozy scuffle on a boat to Amsterdam resulted in the band’s arrest and deportation back to the UK on what would have been their first gig overseas in 1994.
“The drink of choice for a few hours was Champagne and Jack Daniels (during the trip),” producer Mark Coyle recalls in the clip.
“The next thing, sporadic fighting is breaking out all round us and Liam got very excited by the prospect of a lot of chaos going on and he goes and joins in,” he continues. “You can see him running through the windows along the deck. He’s having a great time. It looks like he’s in a school playground chasing leaves. The next time I see Liam he’s still running up. He’s got policemen running after him.”
“As the fight broke out all I remember was it was a bit Benny Hill,” Liam adds. “It was ****ing mayhem man, I loved it. It was punk rock man.”

‘Lucky U was Jim’s favourite place to have breakfast. He ordered a beer and a chilli soup to line his stomach. He could sink six beers in an hour’
Breakfast beer and chili or skip breakfast?
