Do you still speak with your friends from college?
Will Your Friendships Actually Last After College?

No. I can’t even remember their names!

I am still friends with several buddies from the neighborhood.

I communicate everyday with Roy “Duga” Durham in Florida.

We go back to 1957.

And I have lunch every day with our mutual friend Johnny Leach, a dirt track legend. I met Johnny in 1970 when he was selling his 1959 Corvette convertible for $2,000. But $2,000 then was like $20,000 today.

By the way, I gave that name “Duga” to Roy.

There was a cigarette named Duke of Durham. This was like 1961.

So we called him Duke of Durham.

That deteriorated into Duga over the years.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
