    Happy birthday friend. I remember when we were both in the top ten on Billboard’s Hot 100 at the same time, the week of August 15th 1960! You with your future number one hit, “The Twist” and I had just made it to number six with “Walkin’ To New Orleans.Yes, “Those Were The Days” my friend, oh wait, that was Mary Hopkin in 1968! Well anyway, great careers for both of us. Let’s get together for a game sometime…..dominos or checkers, either one, let’s just get together one more time!
