I’m not positive, but I think tomorrow will be the last of my close male friends to get married. I believe there is only one other friend I would call close left to get married and odds are, she will be getting engaged soon. And while there’s always the chance someone will remarry, or that a relative will get married, I have a feeling that this will be the last wedding that I’ll be a groomsman for (like I said, I could be wrong, you never know).
In any case, at the John’s rehersal dinner last night, I had a great conversation with Matt Prestegord and his wife Shayla. We talked about all sorts of things, many of which going back to 7th and 8th grade at Lake Jr. High… Oh those were the days.
It got me thinking about my time(s) with John doing weird things… Like finding just the right pop machine to get Sprite from on the way home… And then finding the right bathroom(s) shortly there after.
The many trips to Damon’s.
The talking about computers, girls (women), moon shoe’s, and putting web cams in kennels.
The countless phone calls and chess games.
And of course, his courtship with Kellie.
Both of our blogs started right about the time we both hit college, and it’s rather fun to look back at the last 10 years of various things…
And it’s hard to believe now how much all our lives have changed almost entirely for the best. We’ve all been extremely lucky.
There was one memory, that I’m not sure John remembers that for some reason kept coming back to me. I’m pretty sure it was our first day on campus… And as I started to type this, I realized, I bet I blogged about it… and sure enough, I did… So instead of typing it again, I’ll link the prior recall of the memory…
I don’t know why I remember the joke about me being a “junior… in highschool.” Maybe it was the moment John and I became “college friends” (prior to that, we basically knew each other threw Richard and bus rides)… I’m not sure. But for some reason, it’s one of *the* key memories for me with John. Very strange how that is.
Well best of luck to you and Kellie tomorrow. I’m honored to be standing by you, and look forward to seeing what’s next for you both!
