Susan Williamson & Roy Stamps were among those who used to come to the Willie Nelson / Darrell Royal golf tourney / songwriters weekend at the Woodlands.

That is where I first got to know Mickey, Sonny Throckmorton, Alex Harvey and a number of other songwriters.

After the formal shows were over at 11 pm or so, most left, but the parties that followed were what it was really about.

Some of the best guitar pull ever. Ed Bruce was there in the early years, along with James Garner.

As the original Marerick tv series was running it's course, Ed & Garner got together & Ed became his tv sidekick in "Bret Maverick".

There were always some of Royals Texas ex footballers at these pulls.

When I first met Ed Bruce, I thought he was one of them. He was that kind of big.

Those were also the times when Mick and James Garner became friends.

Crazy would not describe those nights.
