We had guests yesterday. Mike and Patty Sechrist stopped by. They’re West Virginians now. It was Mike who hired me in 1984 and brought me to WTNH. He runs a few TV stations now.
Helaine and I are definitely Californians. We feel pity when easterners arrive.
“How bad was your winter,” I asked, as if I didn’t know.
Mike holds a very special place in my life. He is my mentor, if it’s possible to have a mentor younger than you. He has offered encouragement and advice as I put together my home studio.
He seemed impressed. I hope he was impressed. He probably would like his own studio, if only for the fun toy factor.
It’s like being with family when we’re with Mike and Patty. Too short a visit. Helaine sent them on their way with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies!
They’re in Palm Springs for a few days, then back to West Virginia. Spring will be there soon. This week they took a needed break from winter.
