Thanks, Todd. Had forgotten this one & it’s so… Lex! I do appreciate your doing this for us.
I love Lex’s self deprecating humor – “only one of us is still in commission. ” He felt old age age 50? I am 10 years older than him. I get the feeling he was feeling a bit melancholy at leaving the Navy and his age. Could be wrong, of course.
He reminded me that the Constitution is still a US Navy warship.
Oh, the things I learn hanging out with such fab people. =) Lex’s writing is as always glorious …and now, poignant.
Beautiful of course; the man really did have a way with words. It’s hard to say that was one of his best when they were all … best.
