I had the distinct pleasure of meeting my LJ “neighbor” Thos. Angle today when I invaded his jobsite. He had mentioned where he would be working today, and I barged in (let this be a warning to the rest of you)!
When I joined LJ, Tom was one of the first to welcome me and we kidded about being “neighbors” since we only live about two hours apart. Since then, he has offered words of wisdom and advice in response to most of my questions and comments. I find his responses to other LJs questions to be equally valuable. His comments have always seemed to be well considered and good natured, thoughtful and often tinged with gentle humor. I jumped at the chance to meet him – although it meant diverting my wife from her intended shopping route!
Tom is every bit the gentleman in person as he is on LJ. He was very patient with my unannounced interruption, and took time to chat and show me what he was working on. His work exhibited his careful craftsmanship and his conversation was tinged with that same gentle humor.
Thos. Angle, it was great to meet you!
