Social Graces

Yesterday afternoon, while quaffing a brew at the Button Hook in Bayview, I had several interesting conversations. I like to show up there once in a while to show that after all, "It's just business."

Along comes an older Guy, balding, slightly chubby. He walked up to me and stuck out his hand. I checked it for weapons, then shook it. He said, "Hi Herb." I said,"Hi Bob." He went on his way, I went back to my brew.

Bob Holland can be a very socially gracious person, as can I. Perhaps he realized that though I have been holding his feet to the fire, that I didn't build the fire, nor did I place his feet in close proximity to that fire.

Life goes on. It's, after all, Bayview ...
