Hiatus ended

Yeah. Been gone for a couple of weeks, with nary an electronic leash. That’s not entirely true, but Wi-Fi hotspots were few and far between, and all I had was my PPC. It was good to be away.

But among the more interesting things that happened to me was this. This is a classic picture from the “a few good men” recruiting campaign that the Marine Corps ran for about 13 years in the 1970s and 80s.

I actually met the guy a couple days ago. I have met few people in life with a more interesting story than his. His was the face of the Marine Corps for over a decade, but he didn’t even mention it. The conversation began with me asking him, “Have we met? You look really familiar.” “I don’t know. Maybe in the coffee shop?” A woman standing nearby was the one who finally said that he was that drill instructor with a famous face.

Anyway, it was an honor to talk with the man. I wish the conversation had lasted longer.
