My client ran a 5K for the first time.Against his running friends advice,had a bottle of wine and wings the night before.He beat their time! He plans to start a tradition next year of wine and wings before the race!
My client said the oil company pumped oil through a spicket on the side of his older house. The oil container was taken out years ago. His basement was flooded with oil. They delivered to the wrong address. This happeded over a year ago. They are still waiting to move back in.
My client, who is retired from the Navy, took his 17 yr old. daughter to visit the campus of Notre Dame in 1999. They decided to go the the football game before touring because Notre Dame was playing Navy. At the end of the game, he felt as though Notre Dame won unfairly and was furious. His daughter asked him if Notre Dame was still a possibility for her. He said she could go, but not a dime of his money would pay for it! She ended up at Vanderbilt. Fast forward to 2006, my clients’ company offers to pay for his MBA if he goes to Notre Dame. He calls his daughter to tell her and braces himself for her reaction. There is a long silence at first and then she says “Not a dime of my money will pay for it!”
My client said he quit smoking once. He was a officer in the military in 1955 and the general wanted him to take a trip from Washington DC to Dayton Oh. It was snowing. He and a secretary were sitting in the back of the plane. They were told the general requested that they put on their parachutes. The plane ran out of de-icing agent. They finally landed safely. All of a sudden, he was a smoker once more!
