Kevin, Marie and Me
This is a photo of Marie Javins, Kevin Kobasic and myself! It was taken in New Orleans more than 10 years ago, I think around 93. I found this snapshot after reading Maries' blog and checking out Kevins artwork. I knew Kevin from my NYC days at Marvel and he was a great guy. I remember him being taller than me, that's always a shocker. I haven't seen him since...I don't know. Six years ago? I had an old number for him, but if anyone has a recent one, let me know.
So, the story on the photo is, It was almost like a coincidence the three of us meeting. I flew down there to meet a woman I was dating. She had family in New Orleans and we made plans for dinner. I think I just ran into Marie! In the days before cell phones we just told her the name of the Brew pub/Restaurant and she and Kev joined us.
I had a lot of fun on that trip! I put on a dress and marched in a French Quarter parade, I badly cut leg while shaving it. My lady friend and I walked down to Tulane University(notice the hat), we enjoyed some good music and we ate at some really expensive places. That town was such a great place for romance. I hope to return one day.
