I have so so many memories of Body mainly because I bartender for him in Lake Como at Boodys Bar. But the 1 memory that I still laugh at is; I told Body I could drink shot for shot with him and keep up with him. Back in the day Body would drink either a shot of VO with coffee on the side OR Cognac (sp) with a cup of coffee on the side. Anyways I was keeping up shot for shot but had ran out of money. Sooo I had only lived a few blocks from the bar..drove home to get more cash. The problem was when I got to my house, and put the key into the lock my door wouldn't unlock. So I drive back to the bar and told Bood "somebody moved my house" because I couldn't get in..Boodys reply was " For %#$!* sake Do i have to do everything for you"? He drove me home and told me to sleep it off or drink a pot of coffee because my work shift started in 6 hours. Boodys favorite saying was " Don't just stand there behind the bar. . move around and make me money. I love you Boody and I will miss you...R.I.P.
