I simply cannot believe this.  Today I wrote not one, but two emails to you about my video editing company since I stumbled upon your website today and found that you are right here in my neighborhood.   Then tonight, while doing a little "in depth" research, I discover that you are the lady who walked by the tennis court all summer.  I am the guy who gave you the card - who finally got to shake your hand a couple of weeks ago!!!

Now that school is in session, we can no longer play on the WLHS courts and have taken our game back inside as we do every fall.   I sure have missed watching for you.

This is the wackiest thing.   Can you imagine my surprise scanning your blog and finding the blurb about me giving you that card?!?  Oh my goodness.

Well, Sharon Brothers, now I know who you are and where you work, and now you know who I am and where I work (check your email today if you haven't already).   I think we were destined to talk.   Do you like coffee?
