Leslie's Omnibus

Tootin' the Horn

One of the best parts of blogging, for me, has been the wonderful people I've met.

Saturday night I got to share food and drink with a guy who I met only briefly in Austin, TX and that was almost three years ago.

Now, he may tell you he's a fat, hairy Norwegian from New Scandahoovia, but really, Mike is a terrific teddy-bear of a guy. Widely-read, thoughtful, funny, and a semi-confirmed bachelor, he's wonderful company. (And a little bit crazy. Anyone who'd drive from the land of Sven and Ole to Chicago in a snow storm...)

Anyway, if you ever get a chance to break bread with the guy, just do it! You'll thank me for it.

(And, Mike? Safe travels, my friend.)

Snow storm? That weren't no snow storm! You should have seen it south of Champaign. I'd have taken pictures, but you can see it on an empty channel on your TV.
