This morning, my oldest son Eric and I continued our weekend series of meetings and travel with a terrific breakfast in Cincinnati with Rob Ellis and his wife Laura at a Bob Evans restaurant near our hotel.
On the left are Rob and Laura Ellis, I’m with Eric on the right. We talked about microphones, story-telling, and a host of other subjects including much that wasn’t focused on voiceover, actually. Truly a wonderful way to start the second day of our travels.
After a stop for church services, Eric and I hopped back in the PT Cruiser and started up I-71 toward Columbus, OH. We arrived at our destination, a Cracker Barrel restaurant on the West side of Columbus a few minutes early so we cracked out Eric’s iPod and listened to some of Jeffrey Kafer’s interview with Bob Bergen on the Platform Biased podcast.
It was a pleasant way to pass the few minutes before Joe Szymanski called to say he had just arrived. We had to wait only a few minutes before we got a table. And then a few more minutes of delightful conversation with Joe until we were joined by Dan and Niki Nachtrab.
After a typical Cracker Barrel meal (depending on whether you like Cracker Barrel or not that’s a great experience or not so much), Joe, Eric, Dan and I stopped outside in the sun for a quick photo, taken by Dan’s wife Niki.
It’s so much fun connecting with friends as we have again and again on this trip. My thanks to all of the folks who have gone out of their way to visit with us over these last two days. Truly we have been blessed with some delightful encounters.
And let me say, the very best part of this trip has been sharing so much time talking with Eric as we’ve driven from one place to the next. Eric has been a great addition to the team of our voiceover business, and is growing more accomplished on both sides of the microphone every day.
