All three lifelong friends somehow managed to survive their youthful misadventures, earn advanced degrees from the University of Virginia, and grow up into arguably functioning adults Gilbert E. Schill Jr: In his day, “Bud” could ride a bicycle indoors while balancing a slide rule on his nose and playing “Good Night Ladies” on the harmonica. A fan of water sports, he has water skied up the back of an alligator, had his foot skewered by a sting ray and suffered an octopus up his nose. A trial lawyer and law professor, he lives in Virginia with his wife Ginger. John W. MacIlroy: Fumbling footballs and first dates, and crowning his early years with a lifetime Little League batting average of .081, “Mac” went on to become an attorney, CEO and adjunct professor. Retired, he now lives on the coast of South Carolina with his wife Linda, a ceramic painted dodo bird named Dumont and a small mortgage. Dr. Robert D. Hamilton III: “Rob” flunked out of dancing school and prolonged his adolescence by picking up degrees from three universities including a Ph.D., before becoming an award-winning university professor. Prior to academia, he lived briefly in the real world as a nonprofit executive. He now lives with his wife Jane outside of Philadelphia, PA. He still can’t dance.
This book was myLife too
Growing up in Short Hills 2 years behind the authors, every word touched a nerve or launched a memory for me.
Other than being A Hobart Ave school kid instead of Glenwood all their well remembered adventures where mine too. They go a great job of relating facts and the emotions that went along with each story.
If you grew up in the 50’s and 60’s your life may have been similar. Read the book.
I told my five adult kids to read it if they wanted ton”understand” their dad.
Thank you gentlemen.
