    In the spirit of Doc Brown we remember our rascal friend. As more order, rules, & regulations are imposed on us
    we stand in defiance. When the time is right we throw a wrench in the machinery & delight in the chaos. We
    “pull a Kirby”. Kirby is a verb.

    Sorry to hear the passing of Kirby. I remember coming back here one year with his cousin, and we took a motorcycle ride to the lakes. And his family took us out water skiing. That was a great summertime. R.I.P. Kirby
