Met up with a few folks last night, and grabbed a quick bite, and one thing that we’re all suffering from is trying to remember some folks names…
Granted we’ve gotten older, and nobody had a cruise book handy, but damn… Callsigns, yes, those we remember, but the ‘real’ names? Not so much… Sigh
And tomorrow it will be even worse, as we start the symposium and no body other than active duty will have name tags on. It’s gonna be a LONG day. Faces AND names? Good luck with that, especially since some folks have changed after thirty or forty years.
Getting old isn’t a lot of fun.
But on a fun note, one of my old flight engineers is now a railroad engineer and inspector, and he got to ride 844 in the run to the Golden Spike celebration last week. AND he got aboard Big Boy, but sadly as an engineer, they aren’t allowed any personal communications devices while in the cab. He’s promised pictures, so those should be interesting!
