My favorite Tommy story was told by Bryan Martin. Tommy had gone home with him one day after school to play basketball with him in his driveway.
They came inside to have drinks and snacks.
His mom was just coming in from work and hollered "get that black thing out of here."
Bryan said Tommy looked so funny until his mom rounded the corner into the kitchen with their black DOG jumping up on her, about to knock her down!
Bryan and Tommy laughed about it for years. That was always their greeting to each other.
