  38. I will never forget the mayor of chaparral . A fond memory i have is on my friends 18th birthday he forgot his wallet on the way to the local pub, he kicked the fence in frustration and broke it. we started running back towards his house and there was Bailey two cream pies in hand. He saw us sprinting and started sprinting with the Pies in the same direction. We almost died of laughter of the image of a man sprinting with pies. It was a fond memory and the beginning of new memories as we became friends .
