We actually went to high school together. Yet never met.
We met briefly in 2001--at our 20 year high school reunion. (Picture on the left.)
"Who is that?" I asked a mutual friend.
"That's Dr. Lester...yes, he was in our class."
I did not see him again until our 25 year high school reunion. He came up to me and said hello...we took a picture...and I did not see him again for another five years.
He friended me on Facebook in early 2011.
And we were both on the committee for our 30 year reunion.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Our 35th reunion will be next year.
