Hey ... I’ve got a fairly good-sized beast of a friend who I’ve lost contact with and had a house on the shore of Hopatcong (at least years back). I would guess he has kids near your age. His name is Rick S. He and his wife hail from St. Louis. He worked for ATT then.
There’s a sad pic from back then of me assisting him building his back deck. He’s hefting the man-sized two-thirds or more of pre-fabbed sections, and I’m sagging with my meager ability to contribute (he came in 3rd at the Missouri large school state wrestling championship in the 167 # class, me 5th in 132).
If you know him, have him contact me please? My profile name is not a stage name but my real name. I don’t know what I can offer you of significance for this favor ... but ... whatever pulls you want on Bull Shoals?
