Last night I had a happy rendezvous with another friend, Nick Gillespie, who lives in the Jackson area. Nick's father Jim and I have been friends for many years and I have had the opportunity of watching him grow into the fine young man that he is. He works for the National Park Service and it was fun to share an evening together. An additional benefit was that Nick brought me a special present - my credit card! My wife Cynthia had sent it to him by express mail and a big thanks is in order to both. We had a great evening together topped off with some of Nick's great guitar playing. I would never have guessed that I would walk over 700 miles from home and spend an evening with old friends.
