Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Well, I finally did it, cowardice or not.

I've known for a long time that an friend from long ago was a physician in Northern Indiana. The last time I saw him was when he and his family visited Southern California in the late 1960s. My mother had passed on an email address for him that his mother had given her, but by the time I'd received it, it was either old news, or in being transmitted repeatedly, it had been corrupted and was incorrect.

So, finally, I caved in and started calling hospitals in Fort Wayne, Indiana, after checking for his name via AOL's Yellow Pages service. Finally, one of them admitted that he was on staff in the ER, but not on duty today.

The ER staffer who took my call is leaving him a message with my email address, in the hopes that I'm contacting the right person. We'll see if I get a response.

I guess this year'll be the year of re-contacts...
