you know the howertons will be pulling for barnes today!!! … my dad grew up with the barnes boys a coupla generations ago, and consequently, our fams became friends long ago (that’s me at 5 months old being babysat by ricky’s aunt becky barnes!!! … lol. thanks mom for digging that up) … and thanks too to fresno beach & facebook for putting us back in touch–the power of social networks strikes again!! … what’s up, becky!!!
so bear down, barnes boys!!! … everybody from central cali to nocal is pulling for ya!!! (fyi, if you didn’t know, ricky’s brother andy is his caddy. here’s a good story on that).
