Wow, you really rubbed shoulders with the famous. I'm impressed.

Didn't he own a liquor store in CA at the time?

I don't think he owned it then but he did later on. This was shortly after he had arrived in the U.S.

I saw Ky a couple times in VN, and his wife was famous for wearing tight pants and a revolver slung low on her hip.

Catalyst/Taylor said...

Yes, they were a pair to draw to. I think he was pretty much a gangster.

Great pic although it is dying for a caption contest. Here's mine. So General, where did you hide the money?

Catalyst/Taylor said...

You win, Frank. He didn't seem overjoyed to shake hands with me. Think he expected me to be down on one knee!

Stephen Hayes said...

I'm impressed. You traveled in some interesting circles.

Great moment. Wonder how he felt about you having more facial hair than he.

I guess politicians are the same the world over: as you said, he was a gangster
