Phil was a Julia Keen attendee, a little older than most of us in our grade, and a tough guy with a rep.  A "friend" I shall not name, who wanted to be a trouble maker, was asking me who I was afraid of at Keen.  My answer was "no one."  That was translated to Phil as "Curry says he can take you," so Phil felt obliged to give me the opportunity.  I explained the actual context - that I had an older brother who hadn't lost a fight to me yet, but that didn't mean I walked around afraid of him - or of anyone.  Phil had older brothers and understoood, and we disappointed the others by becoming closer friends.  Saw him again during high school and gave him a jump start.  So glad he had a loving family and enjoyed the Saguaro National Park.  I love it as well.
