That said, this show seemed pretty good- lots of people turned out. Hope that you didn't miss it.

I went to visit Mike about a week before he died. He was spending nearly all his time in bed-not having energy for much else. What he did have energy for was to hold court for nearly three hours on the distant past of combing through the attics of old L.A. bicycle shops looking for the choice old parts to complete some of the many restorations he dedicated much of his spare time to. Mike frequented some of the same shops I went to in my teens growing up in Santa Monica. We knew a lot of the same people-we had crossed paths without knowing it many years before actually meeting. I am very sad to lose this friend and feel lucky to have known him. At times he was an over opinionated pain in the ass. Other times he was definitely the smartest person in the room. He could completely aggravate some while being a valued friend to others. He did not live that long or make a big name for himself but whatever he did, he made sure to do it well.
Rest in peace, Michael.
