If You Are Not In The Crease....

Charlottesville, Virginia

February 18, 2020

Jeff, Tom and I were apartment mates 40 years ago. We had a fourth member of the Crease - Jeff’s dog, Tweed. A big, beautiful, highly intelligent yellow lab. (Ok, two out of three.). Everyone has a Tweed story or five - he brought a lot of joy to many.

These two guys have played such an important role in my life - almost all positive. 🤪. Truthfully, I cannot imagine what my life would have been like without them. I can still remember some of Jeff’s quotes to me - “whatever you do, don’t be yourself” and a recurring “do you have a date to the game yet?” Then there was “do you need plane fare?” and the “ I am drunk can you come pick me up? as a ruse to get me to stop studying and go out drinking. Tom was always my role model for how you balance fun with engineering classes - no one was better at that than Tom.

I am so lucky that our friendship has continued to grow over the past 40 years - Tom and Jeff still make my life richer and more fun.

To finish the saying, it went, “if you are not in the Crease, you are out of bounds.”

June 1, 2023 No news on the balloon since April. Has Congress held hearings? I'm surprised that release of more information wasn't part of the debt ceiling negotiations! Just being a jerk!
