I can't encourage you enough to continue with this work... in your email to me, you sounded concerned that this would be boring for some and you were very self effacing about it... which is your healthy humility... but the brilliant thing about it... and this may be an eternal and universal truth.... is that one person's story is everyone's story.... it is the human condition... which is a BIG story... but as a wise scribe once told me... "You have to tell a small story i order to tell a large one." That's what I feel is happening... I can't wait for the next installment and i will be forward the link to all of my st. matt's/eastside friends and family!
God Bless you for sharing this with us.

Young Dave,

Was the Better Made guy's name Izzy ? When I was a kid the lady down the streets brother was the better made driver and I'd see him everywhere. He would always keep a box of the small bags of chips and hand em out to kids.

The St Clair Shores location and the year would match em up perfect.
Beebia, I don't recall the Better Made Potato Chip guy's name, but I bet Jimmy Russo knows. As far as I'm concerned, it WAS Izzy.
Dave - I like it. Innovative. Keep it up, looking forward to more.

I love it, Dave. Please continue and let me know when there is more.
Your friend, LolaSophieLori
Nice job, Dave and Gary! Dave, you're a natural in front of the camera . . . you have kind of a John Turturro vibe about you. Keep up the good work - send me an email when the next installment is available.

I'm sorry you had to go through so much at such a young age. Childhood should have treated you better. The videos are riveting, and I'm astonished by your honesty. I think you have a lot of courage. I have a new respect for you, and that's on top of the respect I already had for you. I hope you keep on trucking. And correcting my grammar.

Love ya,

I love that you have done this. It's not only a great insight into someone I know (and now, I feel I know even better), but it's a great look at the era and the location.

Thanks for sharing. It's very impressive, endearing and incomparable.
