Bob and I went on the Texas Water Safari and other Texas canoe races as well. We won a few and lost a few. Bob and I have paddled many, many miles together. In 1971 we got 2nd place on the Texas Water Safari Race From San Marcos to Sea Drift on the coast. During one of these races a huge owl flew over us and pooped on Bob's face! What a sight! He almost drowned himself trying to get that poop off.
I got to be Bob's brother and friend for 71 years. How Cool is that?
