The setting for the ROMEO Bru
nch could not have been more perfect…blue sky's, warm sun, outdoor sitting in 75 degrees, excellent burgers, Reuben’s, omelets, pancakes and waffles. Oh, and there were some OK people present.
Dave Schoenbeck was a very proud grandpa for the 5th time showing photos of his new granddaughter. He also said business was absolutely booming and had been on the incline since December…lets you know what happens when someone wants to work. Stan Petersen took a break from his son visiting from California to show off his new look; a very well trimmed somewhat grey( OK, all grey) beard; looks good. Mark Panzer had just been in Boise for the retirement celebration of Daniel Salem; he saw Tony Provenzano, Nikki Price,
Marc Allgood along with a host of others. Curt Larson drove up from Queencreek; about an hour and 10 minutes. The things we do for friends. He is settling into his new home and loving it. Brent Keil is preparing for his European trip in April and very excited considering his Germany and Austria journey was canceled in December. Jerry Ostermann is well and doing a little work around his Scottsdale residence; windows are one of his focuses.
We spent quite a bit of time remember people and their antics over the years. The names were in abundance: Craig Pfau, Dick Miller, Jim Young, John Owen, Bud Morse and many more. Inner city stores were remembered for their comedic offerings in hindsight, but not so much at the moment. Oh the things that happened over the years that wouldn’t pass muster today.
Everyone of us remembers those things that made our time with the people of this company so worthwhile. Gerry
