        WELL,  It was a spendid Valentines Week for JB – who just happens to celebrate his 39th birthday every year on February 14 – –   in Heavenly Hills , CA, where he reaquaints with many of his old friends (you can still visit at  – like  JB at  where he enjoys his favorite music, movies and memories one doesn’t find much anymore in mainstream media.   )   There were Mary , George and Bob, ,   Dino and Frank and others . Rochestor was by Jack’s side the whole time…even got out the old Maxwell, pictured below (still not running well) for the occasion.

Now, how’s about a visit back to an earlier 39th birthday in 1969
