Travels With Hamp–September, 1970 to March, 1972
I received a call from Chuck McClendon one afternoon as I watched the Watergate hearings in Congress some time later. Chuck said the guys testifying that day were the same guys who took that Nixon re-election campaign plane ride to Florida with Hamp and the band right after I quit. "It's in the bag," they told Chuck–and now these guys were facing some serious jail time for their transgressions.
How do you feel about this?" Chuck asked.
"Vindicated," I said.

With two toddler boys and an infant daughter, Lorry and I sold our new home and moved from Trenton, NJ to New York City in December, 1967. We said we would try to establish ourselves in the city in ten years before deciding our future. But by November, 1976–eight years and eleven months–our children were happy and productive, Lorry had a great career at Coach Leatherwear, and I was a well-traveled, working musician and a published author. It was obvious that we could live nowhere else and be happy. We were New Yorkers–period.
