I only met Stan once at an NHRA event with a group of other racers that I knew (Randy Parks Top Fuel Dragster driver).
Read many of his articles, was nice to put a face with a name, especially in journalism.
He was genuinely a nice person to everyone he met

Former Alabama Assistant Coach Pat Dye died today at 80yo due to kidney problems.

Pat was famous for his way with the English language.

A. During his interview to be Auburn's football coach, he was asked how long it would take to beat Alabama (who owned something like a 8 yr run on Auburn). Dye's reply was, "sixty minutes".

B. He once claimed on radio (and it was taped) that "hindsight is 50-50".

C. Relating a story of how he had lunch with the famous Alabama author Harper Lee, Pat said she had written the book, "To Kill a Black Bird".

D. The story of how he lost his pants (with his wallet in it) on Lake Martin which were found 20 years later is funny (Dye claims to not remember losing his pants). Heck, that's understandable. It happens to me so many times I don't remember each event, right? :confused3

So here's to one Patrick Fain Dye.



He was a true "character".

    Today We lost Charlie Daniels a true friend of veterans and a great musician
    he played the talladega infield a couple years ago and was still pretty good. I’d previously seen him about 20 years earlier, not so good. So it was good to see him in better shape.

    Sounds like something a camping trip could cure!

    As a lot of you may of heard, on yesterday we lost a member on our Dis camping forum.

    Arnold, or as most of us knew him as Grumpyaggie, went to peaceful rest on yesterday. I got to meet him once while attending a Dismeet at GSP and really enjoyed it. We agreed on a lot of things and he just seemed to blend right in. He was to join us in October and I was looking forward to seeing him again and his lovely wife Gloria.

    Gloria, we all love ya, and will miss Arnold very much.

    I intend to send floral arrangement and will label it as from all of us here on the Dis Camping Forum.
