My brother came to visit his new girlfriend who happens to live 4 hours north of us so we met in the middle at Madison, Wisconsin.
What a fun town.
I had no idea. It just so happened to be the day before the ASU sun devils were playing those pesky badgers. My brother, his gal pal and I walked to this cool lake which is near the UoW campus. Lil brother asked a young man that was standing on the pier if he knew what the name of the lake was. stranger - "no just visiting" I noticed he was wearing an ASU baseball cap so I had to mention, "Hey my son goes there and we used to live in Mesa" stranger -"Oh really where at?" Me -" McKellips and Lindsey" stranger - "I went to H.S. on Lindsey." Me "Did you go to Mt. View?" stranger -"Yeah graduated 2004" Me -"My daughter graduated that year. Do you know her? Emily Allred?. My son Jonathan graduated the year before."
Stranger - "no, I was on cross country and track my senior year." Me- "So were my kids, are you sure you don't them? So you know Coach Sawyer? What's your name? "Sheldon?" Sheldon - " Yea I know Sawyer but don't know your kids, maybe my younger sister knows them." Then I start thinking, hey why is he still in college if he graduated in 04 Me- "Are you LDS?" Sheldon - "yea" looking at me strangely "served in Canada" Me -As I show him my CTR ring (like it's some type of secret agent code ring or something) "I'm LDS too. What brings you out here?"
Sheldon - "Every year we pick a road game to support our Sun devils and this year it was Madison."
He couldn't have picked a better weekend!!
Walked State Street and found a brat place for lunch along with a boatload of maroon and gold old people. (haha I'm not old) I love my brother and his girlfriend seems just right for him. So great to see him, when he lives so far away.
(sorry I don't have a pic of Sheldon - that would have just been creepy, Molly already told me I'm weird for talking to strangers)
