Happy Birthday Lex

Jameson and Guinness will come later.

Logistics says I might have to do the toast from home this year.

Every year I take stock and wonder at how deeply Lex affected me.

On the surface we should never have had a correspondence.

He was a retired Navy Captain, I'm a medically separated Army NCO.

He was an aviator, I was a multi-purpose tanker.

But he answered my silly questions about flying when what I was flying was a very dumbed down simulator and gave them serious answers.

  1. I will join you in a toast tonight, and leave his challenge coin on the bar. Fine man gone too soon.
