How many degrees of separation?
Refer to Dixies blog about the Foundy Party. Well, Phil and I crashed that party. Not for no apparent reason. Now follow this: my niece (we'll call her Lauren, cause her name is Lauren) met a charming young Marine, (we'll call him Nathan for obvious purposes) about 6 years ago at the dinner dance at Nevada County Air Show, where the Moonlight Swing Band was playing. The young Marine's father was/is in the band. It was a beautiful moonlit night, romance was in the air, and they actually fell quite in lust/love that warm summer night. 3 years later they were married, yes, at the Nevada County Airport. It was lovely. It was also the first time anyone had requested to be married at the airport. Anyway, flash forward. We snuck into the party last night as Nathan's father was coming over to spend the night at our house after playing. The 17 piece band play's perfectly authentic Glen Miller swing music (meticulously faithful details) and will soon have CD's available. They were impressive as always. Byline, Bruce (the father) tells me that there have been many weddings at the airport since Nathan & Laurens. So romantic, saying your vows while small planes take off and land on the tree lined runway, especially near sunset. Check it out sometime. It's fun to just take a cool drink out and sit in the little park there and watch the private and CDF planes. By the way, nice to meet you in person Tom!
