Back in the mid 90's when I was a Prime Timer in Dallas, a group of us would attend Mardi Gras in New Orleans regularly. It was there that I first met Woody and his partner, Sean O'Neill. Mardi Gras was a yearly gathering place for Prime Timers from all over the U.S. Woody and Sean were always there to greet and mix with the group.

It was all good fun and people liked getting their photo taken with him — gay or straight — especially women.

The Tri-State Prime Timers (TSPT) celebrated their 15th Anniversary in October. The anniversary meeting was held at the farm of two founding members Larry Kees and Dave Schaffer. Around 100 people attended, and TSPT is particularly thankful to the members from the Miami Valley Prime Timers of Ohio, Columbus of Ohio Prime Timers, and Louisville Prime Timers who came and joined in the celebration.
