An Evening with Old Friends

Saturday, July 31
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.


  1. Thanks for that Ray. Nick just called and said what a good time you two had together. Happy the card thing turned out. Happy travels and we will be thinking of you as you head over the Teton Pass! You may need new brake pads on the down side. Take care, Alison and Jim G

  2. Saw you today in Victor ID Driving from Jackson to CA

  3. Jim and Allison-Your son is very much a blend of the best of both of you. Very nice to spend time with him in our room in Jackson Hole, and out for dinner at the Mangy Moose. You two can be very proud of your son---and he plays a 'mean' guitar, Wow!
