This morning when I checked my email there was an email from Reuben an old Navy friend of mine. That was a very pleasant surprise!

Reuben said he retired from the Navy in 1984 (think). In 1965 he got out shortly after I did and stayed with me and my parents and looked for a job in the Atlanta area, and then reenlisted.

He said he ran a Google search and found my blog and has been reading it. So, I there will not be much catching up, because I have been catching myself up on Chicken Fat for about the past 8 or 9 months.

But there are plenty of things I want to know about him and what he did with his life for the past 40 years.... time stands still for no one.

Isn't it great when a person from the past contacts you. It is great to know someone sought you out like that. Have fun catching up with him.

We must have been influenced by the same moons - I thought of running a search on him last week, and was still planning in my head how to do it.
I sort of live in the past anyway, so this is a virtual reality thing for me.
