Slam blog?

Okay, this is from my wife's blog who took it from Kate/Susan's blog who took it from (fellow Alabama native) Manda's blog who probably took it from some other blog elsewhere, etc., etc.

If you have any bones to pick with Talmadge Q Gleck, now's your golden chance. The deal:

1) As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn’t matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2) Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It’s actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I’ll assume you’re playing the game and I’ll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don’t want to play on your blog, or if you don’t have a blog, I’ll leave my memory of you in my comments.

So there you go. What do you remember about me? Best memory. Spare nothing. I can take it.

Ciao for niao.

My fave RW moment is the mushy gushy type. When we were leaving Savannah and you absolutely commanded me to stop part way back to Virginia, and not to push it and try to drive all night. I really appreciated the concern you demonstrated for our well-being that night and it made me smile the whole way to Fayetteville and even today.

From 10 years of fun, I gotta come up with ONE memory???? Good Lord. Okay, okay......

To echo K/S's thought, the VERY first time I met Tal & Sera in person, I was getting over a horrific sinus infection. I had taken the last one of my antibiotics and was feeling good. We met at the Varsity, where we spent at least a good two hours or more just chit-chatting ... almost like we'd all known each other all our lives. From there, we proceeded to Underground where.... I suddenly got dizzy as all get out, and leaned facefirst into a trash can, and suddenly that good lunch was there.

The fact that they've been my friends through ALLLLLLL that (and there have been a few other "pull over! pull over!" moments), well, they're good people.

Individually? The times Tal and I have talked shop about music and radio. I'm a mere neophyte sitting at the feet of the Shaolin master, and it's been a pure delight!

Mushy gushy? Yeah, you saw past the exterior crust and found the creamy filling. Lucky you. :-)

I didn't even give a second thought to my 'commands' after Sunday supper -- by then, you were a full friend, and everything which goes with it. I saw tiredness in your face, and I didn't want you folks to push it. (I know from whence I speak -- Sera can vouch for that, after my grandmother's funeral. I wanted to get home from B'ham, but that Red Roof Inn logo in Macon looked too appealing at 1:00 a.m.)

It is an honor to call you and The General friends.

This is a sign of the times....writing a favorite memory of a friend who I have never met in person! This is hard...

One of my favorite memories of you is what an awesome friend you have been to another friend of ours (s/k)over the last few months. I don't even know you and I can see past the crusty exterior! :)

Another one of my favorite memories of you are your great blogs that insipre me to blog about something myself - like your blog about the cars! I know it's not super profound like the others, but I have only "known" you for a few months!

Melissa: Profoundness is like fermentation in wine. Only increases with age.

It's amazing how some of us have "jumped" blogs and it's all led to a nice little blogring. I found Kate/Susan's blog through Nettie's, and then your blog through K/S'.

Myself, I'm richer for the experience.

I've got lots of mushy-gushy memories of you. Having that whole matrimony thing going on with you, I'm bound to.

But I think one of my first and best memories of you goes back to when we first met. Not of the first "Etch-A-Sketch" date, but of the first moment I really felt a romantic, more than "just friends" connection with you.

It was "The Nudge". The moment when I let my guard down and let you hold hands with me. Being someone inexperienced in love and all that comes with having a romantic relationship with someone, I think that's the moment that really started what was to become what we have today.

I love you!
