I’ve been telling you about Rick, someone who Lolly, I, and the kids met when we moved from Texas to Phoenix. He was semi-retired by then, but still working as a technician for the large German manufacturer, Siemens, maintaining and repairing specialized hospital equipment.

We took an immediate liking to Rick and his wife, Rosita. Rick was one of the calmest, most even tempered and sensible people I have ever known, and Rosita was warm and friendly. Oddly, Rick had the ability to talk with anyone who was feeling angry or annoyed and get him or her calmed down in no time.
