My time with Terry spanned only late 50s-early 60s.  The egg barn and dairy farm up the hill provided ample opportunities for shenanigans, and Terry was an expert at finding opportunities.  Actually, Terry could generate shenanigans just about anywhere.  Those were the days; thanks for the memories Cousin Terry.
