A bit of a corny title, but please indulge me.
The photos below were sent to to me by one of the very few people I would “take a bullet for”.
Bill McNamara and I met for the first time when I interviewed with him for a job in 1992… the day after Thanksgiving, during a snowstorm, in the lobby of the Courtyard by Marriott at Philadelphia International Airport.
What was supposed to be a 30-45 minute initial interview, turned into a three hour chat, like best friends sitting on a park bench.
That was back in the day when you could smoke in public places and we enjoyed our first, of many cigars together in that lobby.
I could spend my entire day off today writing about my relationship to Bill, but you really do not care and I may have already lost a few of you to the pictures.
So….Thanks for calling the other day, Boss and I hope you, Joan and the family have a Merry Christmas out on the left coast.
But…Someday, I will tell the entire story as to why Bill is one of the most influential people of my entire life…and I just added, “Smoking one more cigar with Mac” to my bucket list.
My only question this morning though is whether or not these are “real” or “photoshopped”? If real, someone has way too much free time on their hands.
