All young boys (of a certain age) remember Fred's big voice...

Funny, (you have read some of my early year escapades of growing up in Winnie, Texas).  I remember the Lone Ranger (Clayton Moore) making a personal appearance at Keating Chevrolet.  I was but only 6 or 7 years old.  I remember him demonstrating the danger of blanks, as he held up a piece of newpaper and shooting blank rounds from his six-shooter into it and the fire and the conflagration that erupted.  It was quite the experience, for a young boy of that tender age.  

I was in the same Cub Scout troupe as John Keating.  He has carried his father Paul's dealerships to new levels and has since branched out to other parts of Southeast Texas.  Good on him!
