Remembering great times……
Forgive my spotty posting! I just finished a four day tour and we went night and day until it was over and I collapsed! I will rest up and catch up, I promise. I saw something during the tour that really brought back a great memory. When I was shooting at the Law Railroad Museum they had a bottle room with all kinds of great antique bottles. In the corner of one display they had a group of 6 0z. Coca Cola bottles with the name of the bottling plant in the bottom of the bottle. When I was a young boy my father was the manager of a Coca Cola plant and I grew up on the lore of Coke. Me and my friends would by Cokes out of the machine at the corner store (5 cents!!!), and the person who had the bottle furthest away from Harlan had to pay! If there were five of us it cost that person a whole quarter! Fond memories.
The workshop that just ended provided another set of very fond memories! It was wonderful fellowshiping with the great people that came to this event. I’ve known Bill Pekala for a long time, but I can’t remember having more fun just hanging out with him. I’ve known R.C. for a relatively short period of time, but he turned out to be a great companion in the field! I enjoyed my team, Jim, Snake, Richard, and Jim Haverstock immensely! I could go on and end up naming every single person there, but trust me it was truly special.
I finally got rested up today as we set up and opened the facility at Reno. I was struck at just how blessed I am to have such great friends, then the blessing just increased as I got to spend time ith Mark Kettenhofen and Moose Peterson and his family. God has richly blessed me and I am so thankful!
