        they were paying him money for roughly 30 years.  I remember when I was a kid a visit with Roy.. who was in his late 70's or early mid 80's at that point and still had a 23 year old mistress in Oklahoma city(she was always 21-24 as I hear it and they were always gone after their 24th birthday), driving me and my brother around in one of his lincoln Mk VII' or VIII' (it was the long hooded one from the 70's and not the 60's); he like them so much he bought one in every color they offered and put them in a barn and took one out when he got bored with the color he was driving.  He at the time always carried $5000 on him in case he needed to buy something like a car or a house or bail out a family member.

        In his late 80's he could still out lift my dad and had a hand half again as wide as mine and I have ape hands!  He could lift a bail of hay one handed and toss it, which I saw him do that summer helping him on the farm... all that cash and he still lived in a single wide out at the lake most of the time and got his hands DIRTY working.. and god damn he loved to fish! I didn't get to spend enough time with him because of distances but my brother and I always had a good time with him... and I miss him.
