Conners and Wade thoroughly enjoyed their visit with Rudy. Conners asked Rudy for one of his secrets for such a long life. Rudy replied that he has been blessed by God and never expected to live this long, and then added he also drinks a bottle of Red Horse beer before he goes to bed every night, so he can get a good night's sleep of eight hours.
