Description 'Just Because I'm Leaving, that don't mean I'm Gone!'This was a commission in memory of Rufus Thomas.I had the pleasure of meeting him on few occasions.The first time I met him was at the Olympics in Atlanta. Him and William Bell and Percy Sledge were getting ready to do a show. I was invited to the Dressing room as I was taking pictures and so forth. Mr. Thomas was sitting at his dressing table he looked at me and said 'Come here and let me kiss you!' while he puckered his lips and stuck them out at me. I must have had a very perplexed look on my face, wondering how I got in that situation. He looked at me with big sparkling eyes and laughed so hard, as I inched my way to his face. He gave me a kiss smack dab on my forehead and said 'What did you think, on the forehead of course!' Oh it was so funny we all laughed and I was red faced. I liked him ever since. Of course he is now in Heaven doing the Chicken Dance and Walking Dog! Love you Rufus!
