Number 2 on side, no touch-y top!

James & Me
Originally uploaded by currtdawg.
I've known James Murphy for about six years. He lived in Japan while I was over there, as his parents were high school teachers on base. We did lots of onsening, had the annual "Celebration of Life" (hands), and I was even present for his first taste of alcohol at Paddy's ("Hot damn!"). Unfortunately, I haven't seen him in over three years. Luckily, he's on a road trip from San Antonio, Texas to Bend, Oregon, and stopped here in Utah last night.
James has accumulated some very interesting stories over the past few years, and we had a great time catching up. We had dinner and did a short sight-seeing tour of Salt Lake City before heading home to get some much-needed sleep. It was a great night, and I pray for his safe journey. Take care, man.

Ha, Paddy's. Come to think of it, that's the first place I ever got tanked. Funny that this post mentions Japan, I actually came here because I was just watching some of my old Misawa home videos. Fun times man.

Oh yeah. James was in a couple of the videos too. I didn't recognize him in that picture. The kid's really grown up.
