Sounds right to me. Only met that gentleman once, in Dearborn, MI, at a
formal party, all in tuxes, except Henry II in blue jeans (guess everyone
knew he could afford a tux if he so desired) Came weaving and gliding up to
bandstand, catches my coat, says: "Kin you play 'Up the Lazy Liver'? I got
one..." and weaves off into the sunset. [Whose band was it? Al Winters?
Probably. I was a bit overserved myself.]
Outside I found he'd driven a Model A Ford to the party. All by
himself: no bodyguards. Loved it!
