The Morning After the Night Before

Dinner with Old NFO was a joy. It was our first meeting, of course. 

It was a wide-ranging conversation covering events of the last 40 or so years ... and it was a blast. 

It even turns out that we were on Adak Island (Alaska) at the same time, in the '70s. 

For all of you who passed greetings to him, here, I relayed those messages. 

All told, it was a fascinating conversation, and absolutely made my day. 

I'd mentioned here that I don't run into other bloggers, with a base of operations in Anchorage. Jim and I had to travel a combined 8,000 miles to make this happen. 

I had a blast, and hope he did, too.

You're right, threecollie. Thanks.

Thanks, Kelly.

I love good stories with happy endings.

Heh. We torment him with age jokes but we love him.

Yep, he's a great guy to hang out with!

Rev. Paul said...

PH - when I mentioned your message last night, he just chuckled.

Jim - you are right. But then, you know that. :)

Old NFO said...

It was great to finally meet you and you and your lovely wife are great folks to talk to! Y'all really have some great experiences and life stories!

Rev. Paul said...

The feelings are mutual, Jim. I hope we can get together one more time before you leave.
