I couldn't believe the fate that befell me this evening.
I was just leaving work and one of my local cronies calls me and requests my presence at a local watering hole close to my house. I rarely have a drink (even a beer) and drive these days but I went over and find that those reperbates were doing some early christmas celebrating. Not being one to throw a wet blanket on the fire, I had a couple beers, looked out, and it's snowing like hell and more.
I knew I didn't want to drive home in that condition and miraculously, Mrs Frog calls me and says that her and our friend Terry are on their way down to have dinner with me. I was so relieved because I don't have to worry about driving home.
We finished dinner and were leaning back and I look over to see a person I have been wanting to see for a good long time now and he sees me at the same instant. Ryan.
I hired this kid about 13 years ago. We spent nine years learning and working together. He left our organisation to expand his horizons.... of which I regrettably approved!
I have to say that our reunion was not unlike when my own children greet me. He actually kissed me on the cheek. I wanna tell you, I was overcome and I kissed him right back! (grabbing his head like I do my own sons!)
Mrs Frog, me and Ryan spent some good time reminiciting about the good old days!
