This kid couldn’t do anything right. Anyway, after I found out about Lupe’s scam, I left and the fake club disbanded soon afterward. In 1964, I joined the Night Riders. For this club, we even went so far as to get patches. The club lasted for about a year after I joined it. The club really didn’t have it together enough, and it didn’t have the leadership to amount to anything. The three guys I remember best from that club are Johnny Straiter, Portagee Bob, and Indian. I got along with real well with both Johnny and Portagee Bob; they were good guys.

Everybody wanted to get tattoos overseas. Here I am showing off the one I got when I was fourteen years old. This giant Buddha is in Kamakura, Japan. When you go inside it, there is a little Buddha in the head. AFTER I GOT HOME from the navy, I decided to pay a visit my friend Junior. That meant making a trip to Oklahoma. There were two problems with this idea. One, I had almost no money, and, two, I had no vehicle, not even a bike. I did have a perfectly good thumb, though, so that’s what I used to get there.
