Dennis was my uncle and his dad, William Ruby was my grandfather. When Dennis was about 10 and I was six, we helped one of his neighbors there in Dearborn because the guy was locked out of his house. Dennis, who was quite tall even then, hiked me up to a small window over the door and I went in and opened up the door. The gentleman gave us a dime and a quarter and I got the dime.

Years later when Dennis played at the Century Lounge in Ann Arbor (mid '60's), I would go down from General Motors Institute in Flint on Friday nights and bug him about the quarter vs the dime. We had a lot of laughs over that story; then one day Dennis gave me a mint 1944 (my birth year) quarter - Dennis was an avid coin collector - and I still have that quarter to this day all packed in its cardboard and polyester jacket with the inscription "Now we're even". Thanks Dennis
