On the evening of June 12, 1972, 208 teenagers graduated from LaSalle Academy and my parents reconciled after a two year separation. They left the graduation holding hands (remarkable). I headed north with four classmates and two teachers on a Yorkville tavern crawl.
The next day, hung over & seeking refuge, a chain of events began that led me on a two year adventure that closed out my teen years with a roller coaster ride. I took four friends along, it was the best time of our lives. Demolition ended the journey, but not the memories.
