coffee and charity

When your post inspires another post, you’re not in control of where the inspiration takes the writer. Fortunately, Dan (the other Dan) never disappoints. He winds meanders a bit, but then, that’s his stock and trade.

I was telling a story to my friend Phil , Just yesterday or the day before , about an old friend of mine from way back , Fred Kail , who was an old man even then . We cleaned student apartments together and got to be buddies .

About Dan Antion

Husband, father, woodworker, cyclist, photographer, geek - oh wait, I’m writing this like I only have 140 characters. I am all those things, and more, and all of these passions present me with opportunities to observe, and think about things that I can’t write about in other places. I have started this blog to catch the stuff that falls out, overflows and just plain doesn’t fit the other containers in my life.

    It is just like you, Dan, to inspire and then follow up with sharing another’s way of giving. I will head over to read the other Dan’s post. I like how the ripple effect works on blogs!
