So...... my world shrinks again. A good friend of mine and I went out last night. Bobby G. Riddle.
After he picked me up, we got to talking and I told him I had txt'ed Jake Zakara's to come out and meet us at the Casino to see Magic Bus. As it turns out, Jake had a gig he was doing at a new venue in Sultan Wa. Joe Slick's place.
Here we go; when I was married, I helped raise my step daughter from the time she was 9 until she married. Well, guess who she married? Joe Slick's son. Funny, I didn't meet Jake Z, until after I was divorced.
So Bobby and I get to talking about this, and who we know and from when, and I'm thinking, "oh, the story's I could tell. This person, who knew that person, and so on and so forth. Bobby was in a band by the name of Guardian back in the day, with Tom Zakara's. Funny thing here.... When I met Rick, he was in a band with Tom's son Jake.

The band we went to see last night, Magic bus, has a few member's that have hit it big. Funny thing is, I met one of them on the day of my 17 year anniversary, or what would have been, and had no idea who he was. A friend of a friend introduced me, and I got a picture of us together, but point being, I ended up in his circle too.
At this point in my life I am under the distinct impression at this point in my life, that we really have no control over how we live or who we know. It's all part of this divine plan, and no matter what roads we took to get to where we are now, it would not have mattered, we would have still ended up knowing the same people.
