Well. If you ever wanted to make a writer’s day, month or year, you might want to try something like this.
My friend Bert W., whom I’ve known since grade school, is a veteran world traveler. You name the place, he’s been there, probably twice.
His latest adventure was a trip to the Mount Everest base camp. Fortunately, he managed to avoid being buried by the recent earthquake in Nepal, but judging by some of the pictures he sent back, it was a close call.
Bert, I may live only 700 feet above sea level, but this took my breath away. One of my creations has now traveled farther than I ever have. A million thanks and a hearty salute for you, sir!
