Thread Name: Writing Someone Alive to Say Thanks!
Subject: RE: Writing Someone Alive to Say Thanks!
I kicked aboput a lot as a youth with the eldest son of a well known musician. He (the son) and I played hooky together, chased girls, learned about pot, played rock and roll music in the summer, got in trouble with various people in blue uniforms and raised various kinds of hell. I wrote them last Spring to tell them I had come to realize how much worry all our banderlogue adventures must have cost them, now having grown to be a parent myself, and to tell tham that payback was indeed a bitch, and to apologize for all that stress.

The response was delightful, surprised and delighted. Mrs. B, who wrote for them, accepted the apologies with grace and humor, and even offered a few insights into what had been going on.

It put to bed a very old debt on my part and I was very happy to have done it in time.
