Spike is alive and well residing in Las Vegas, NV. I just had a phone call
from him and he is spending his leasure time
at the blackjack table proving more lucrative than contesting. He and I
spent about ten years contesting together as Multi-op
in many contests each fall and winter. Burning the candle at both ends took
its toll on us. He retired from contesting but I
still manage 6-8 each season. If you have a dr. Bafoofnik cap, hang on to
it. Rumor has it that they are now selling
on e-bay for x amount of shekels! Also, one is in the Smithsonian right
next to Mr. Rogers sweater.

that I had not seen him for some time, the last being when he gifted me with
said cap. I believe Dr. Bafoofnik was Spike, W9XR ( call may be wrong, I'm
afraid), and I recall he had great fun with the name. Can anyone tell me
what has become of the good doctor?
