It it always a delight to get to meet nice people in the various places that I travel. In the last few weeks I’ve had 3 such encounters and tonight I’m finally getting around to posting about them.
First, I had the pleasure of seeing my good friend Willie Edwards again and of meeting Ed Gambill for the first time when the 3 of us shared a luncheon of genuine Lexington County Barbeque. Willie had been singing the praises of his adopted home’s culinary delights ever since I first met him and I have to say he was absolutely right. It is nothing short of fantastic.
When we paused for a photo at the end of our meal, the “chef” was nice enough to join us.
Then, a couple of days ago, while I’ve been in Nashville, TN I got a chance to hang out for a wonderful evening of food and conversation about all kinds of subjects, some of them even having to do with voiceover work, with the terrifically talented Stu Gray.
Our waiter, Tom, was kind enough to take our photo with both my camera and Stu’s. You can see Stu’s photo and read his thoughts about our time together in the post he’s written on his blog. (Stu, that glow you saw in the East this evening? That was me blushing about all the nice things you had to say.)
And then less than 12 hours later I had a truly wonderful 5 hours of visiting with my long time friend Brian Mason while he did his Sunday morning Christian music show on Mix 92.9 in Nashville.
Brian Mason and me in, what else, a radio studio after his show on Sunday morning.
Every one of these individuals fits in the category of nice. I so enjoy getting to spend time with my friends, old and new, when I have to travel.
