#2 Sarasota!

Buddy North!

I met him. An elegant gentleman, immediately friendly, genuine, and conversant. I'm grateful for the time I had with him.

One thing I noticed, which Buckles has also written of here--Mr. North asked me who we had with us at Jungleland at the time. Among those I named was Arky Scott, saying, "Your elephant boss for a time." North at once said, "No, we didn't have him." I tried reminding him that Arky had the RB herd during the filming of GSOE, and was in the film by name, even with a speaking part, but North said again, "Scott. No, didn't know him. He wasn't with us." I let it go at that, but I'm still puzzled why he denied Arky Scott.
