Message:  First of all, I hope everyone is all right. I know that Mickey is somewhere in South Carolina, helping with boats. If there is a boat to be found, Mickey is near.

I remember a 'boat' he owned. His first Cadillac was a gold boat. He walked into the dealership in Texas, in his cowboy boots, wearing a beard, and carrying a brown paper bag..... with $9000 in it. He was ignored by most of the salesmen. Somebody had just test-driven the gold Caddy, and Mickey watched as the older salesman dickered with the customer. Mickey searched out the youngest salesman and asked if he would like to sell a car 'right now'. The salesman said, 'sure, but nobody is buying today'. Mickey told him if he could write up the contract on that Gold Caddy, he would pay in cash 'right now'. The salesman did, and Mickey walked out with the keys, and drove it off while the older salesman was still trying to sell it. Then he lived in it for two to three years. Many a song was written in that boat.
