Awwww = AWESOME!

Class was fun today.  We watched a rather, eh, funny, SOOOoooo not politically correct SouthPark episode on evolution.  Omgosh, funny!  That started class.  It then dissolved into a lecture about more Darwin questionings, more evolution, and more theory.  LOVED it!

Then, I came to work.

"Ad2b?" I heard this voice ask in a voice I've recognized since I, well he, was born.  Our families have been friends for over 60 years.  His mom and dad, and my mom and dad... his sisters and brothers, my own brothers; our summers - my summers - were spent at his family's cabin.

His dad passed away in the summer of 2010.  The related posts are here:

Mr. Zim Part II
Mr. Zim Part III
Mr. Zim Part IV

So, Mr. Zim's son will be working just over "there" from me.  It was like coming to a welcome home party today walking into work with a feeling of such happiness just seeing him.  Such a comfort as his family created the best childhood memories for me.  Obviously, some vesitges of those memories still remain.

Kind of like warm cookies by a warm fire on a snowy night, that was my greeting today.  And now for a few more weeks, I'll get more of that.
