LEJ penned the "Ballad o' 102" to commemorate the infamous group in the room at the end of the hall at the Getway. Barry looked like the youngest guy in the group, but he slept more than the rest of us combined.
See if you can guess which verse describes our Birthdya Boay.
Happy Birthday, Barry!

The Ballad o' 102

In the Central Lodge
where I was housed
There was a Brave Lad dwellin'
and he would rise
Deep in the night
and put the heat on "Grillin'"

another Lad that dwelled therein
a Celtic boy and darin'
and he were known
throughout the Camp
for the Cardinal hat he was a-wearin'

a third dear boy
a troubador
with his Martin was a-willin
and he were forced
to wear a horse
so the Bourbon he was swillin'

another hailed
from Canaday
beneath his bunk was a-crawlin'
we saw him hide
and there abide
when for his fair wife he was a-bawlin'

and lastly he
who bunked under me
from this Lad songs came a-pourin'
a kindly friend and gentleman
though he shook the rack wi' snorin'

Through joy and care
we dwell-ed there
and passed the partin' beaker
for the hours were gold
but truth be told
that the Room smelled like a Sneaker
