Hey, it's Christmas. So where's The Ancient Mariner? I've been missing his memories, bons mots and friendly insults.

    Michael,  I haven't heard from him in quite awhile. I'll send along a PM to check on his well-being and report back

            OK guys, I got a reply to my "What's Up?" note. Here's Bill's response...
            Merry Christmas Mayor
            I am fine, thank you. Nice of you to ask.
            I have been busy running around, hither and yon and got away from
            the computer. After a while I just didn't go back to it. 

            ............................................
                               .......................................... 

            You can tell Michael that I heard he had settled down and had become a
            mild mannered gentleman. Not that he ever was anything other than.
            It really is hard to believe, but this came from an impeccable source.

            If you want to you can wish everyone a GREAT 2012 for me, and thanks
            again for checking up on me.

                                chewingthefat, Very good description of our Buddy.  But, I would say extremely funny, extremely kind and extremely accomplished
                                 
                                The Ancient Mariner was "The" guy to hire for kitchens and custom cabinetry on Long Island.  Besides the quality work, you knew you were dealing with a quality person who was honest and just plain fun to be with.  When realtors were selling a house, they would be sure to mention to the perspective buyer that the home had a "Kitchen by Kennedy".  
                                 
                                When I mentioned to Bill that I was redoing my kitchen, he offered his help with the design, free of charge.  No fancy computer drawings, he did it all by hand.  All I had to do was take his drawings to my cabinet supplier and place the order.  And I assure you, his design was light years ahead of the computer drafts I had already received.  
                                 
                                When I handed Bill's design over, some of our email exchanges were mixed in with the drawings.  Naturally the emails were filled with Bill's quick wit and words of wisdom.  I went back to the cabinet supplier a couple weeks later and caught one of the girls using Bill's lines with her customers.  I couldn't stop laughing.
                                 
                                So, Besides having a dear friend in St. Pete's, I can proudly say, I am the only person in NEPA with a Kitchen by Kennedy!  He will probably want to kick my butt for posting this.  I'll just have to stay outta St. Pete's for a while.
                                 
                                God Bless Zio!......Here's hoping Old Notre Dame goes all the way this fall.
