Eek! A tree!

Got e-mail this morning from Janis with the subject "you'll never guess..."

Turns out her husband Sam (my fraternity brother) showed up at her place unexpectedly last night! Janis is a vet student at Cornell, and Sam is a Captain in the U.S. Army who's spent most of the last several years stationed in Germany, but recently has been in Honduras. Needless to say, they don't get to spend as much time together as they'd like. (Janis did live with Sam in Germany for a while before starting vet school.)

So I was especially pleased when, a couple of hours ago, Sam was suddenly standing next to me at Bound for Glory. They came to join me at the show!

Suddenly I'm having memories of teaching Sam to drive when we were in college, and shoving him and Janis together. The latter, at least, worked! As for the driving... he apparently hit a deer on his way to Ithaca yesterday. You decide.
