Musings: Emily and Haile

I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again – I have so far been “one lucky Dude.”

I’ve had some rough spots in my life (very few people did not).

Here I am, and at the age of 107 in pretty good shape, and so is my family.

Danny drove me to see the T-shirt printing facility of Haile and Emily – Ink Squad L.A.

Very impressive.

My heart “glowed.” They may not know it, but this is the best time of their lives, their “halcyon days.”

Two young married people, deeply in love, working together building a business. 

They brought back memories of Betty and me.

They are and will keep expanding their business.

They showed us a sample of their end product.

A T-shirt with a stamped design (very innovative.) Haile is very talented.

My wish and hope is that they prosper and when the time comes, raise a loving family.
