Tom I promise you it is a very small world.

Turned out he was my uncles insurance man from a little town in Illinois called Rochelle, population less than 10 k at that time lol.

BTW love LL and the Sakett boys! Think I have read every thing he has written. Great quote.

I was born and raised in New Orleans. 1951-1970.
Eventually joined the Air Force where I spent six years in Berlin (great cycling), a year in Thailand, a year in Korea, three years in Las Vegas. The rest in Texas except for six months in Illinois for training at Chanute AFB. Retired from AF and moved to Corpus in 1993. I'll be around here for another five years or so--then retiring (for real) in Thailand.

I can't remember the years, but I remember the sequence!

Richmond Heights, Ohio (east side of Cleveland)
Montclair, New Jersey (work/study job while in college)
Miami, Florida (work/study job while in college)
San Diego, CA
El Paso, TX

I've been in San Diego more than half my life and definitely consider it my "home town."
