Two Wild and Crazy Guys!

Posted by on February 18, 2013

On January 31st, Sabrina flew home to visit family and my former college roommate, Stretch, flew into town. (He earned the nickname “Stretch” while playing drums in the Ohio University Marching 110, and since his real name is Brad, it’s easier when we’re together for him to still use it.) 

Stretch lives in northeast Ohio and was more than happy to escape winter and spend some time with me in the Bahamas. The weather was a little difficult while he was here, but we still made the best of the situation. We went sailing and fishing one day, played volleyball and softball, and explored Georgetown the rest of the time. Unfortunately, I was a little lax in getting pictures, but I did have the camera with us for a couple of those days.

While he was here, Stretch learned that he had been selected as one of the winners of Akron Life Magazine’s “Single in the City – 2013.”  Unfortunately, I was unable to find a link to the actual magazine article, but here’s a photo of the article that one of Stretch’s friends posted to his facebook page:

He's a celebrity!

In the spirit of his contest victory, I’ve assembled this photo essay of our time here in Georgetown, consider it “Single in Georgetown – 2013.” [And in case you’re wondering, I posted this with Stretch’s permission.]

Like me, Stretch is a proud graduate of Ohio University.

He's also sensitvie, if there would have been a baby bird in this nest, Stretch totally would have nursed it back to help.

Strangely his greatest fear is haunted ship wrecks.

If anyone wants to know more, feel free to email me. I’ll send you Stretch’s email address, phone number, home address and social security number. 🙂

We had a fun time hanging out here in Georgetown, and I hope the shock of returning to winter in Ohio wasn’t too rough for Stretch. I was glad he could come down to visit and keep me company while Sabrina was gone. It was too long since we had got together, and hopefully I’ll see him again soon.
