My best friend of fifty years flew down from Potomac MD the last week of June to visit us for a couple of days.

June is actually the anniversary of our having met, that incident having occurred in line waiting to get into a movie theatre.  We were standing together, he talking to his companion ahead and me talking to my companion behind.  Overhearing bits of each other’s conversations, we introduced ourselves.

We talked on the phone for about an hour and a half yesterday, and this piece of the movie ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ came up.  The infinite ‘incidents out of anyone’s control’ are invisible, of course, but the ones we can pinpoint in hindsight as having steered us from catastrophe?  [brief quiver]

And this has to do with you how?  Well, for starters, a dead Dave would not be posting for your delight.  So, there.
