Theresa Norton, Tom Keefe, Andy Savoie and I met at The Brat Stop, a southeastern Wisconsin beer, braut and music venue landmark. Since Tess and Tom did not make it to Homecoming, Andy reviewed his homecoming stories, then changed gears to tell the stories from homecoming itself (including his personal baseball mistress, the Nationals, failing him in front of Cardinal fans.) Tess has been quite busy traveling the globe for work, including being stranded in Madrid during a strike, for which Andy scoffed as probably being in hell. I learned that travel to the Euro zone has become quite expensive, especially air fares. All evening, I waited for someone to come up to Tom and ask him for an actual autograph from the Mayor of Chicago.
Again, every time we re-connect, it is a great time. That would include the Internet commentary from those who were stalking our group on facebook.

Andy's demonic sweater possessed Tess to wear enemy apparel.
