Looking back on what was…


I wandered into the 14/48 meeting shortly after 8:15, craving a free beer served by a virgin and hoping the “ten minute” run down was almost over. To my satisfaction, I would get both.Shawn Belyea was on the DIRECTOR portion of his high speed, bullet point presentation when I took my seat. “YES!” I yelled within the canyon between my brain lobes, “They’re almost done!”Almost done and I didn’t miss the most heartfelt piece (presentation of the Mazen) and the […]
