You never know

“I’m not afraid of chaos and I’m happy talking to strangers. I really love not knowing where I’m going.” – Fiona Shaw


Not a big fan of chaos. Fact is, I kind of fear it.

However, I’m not averse to speaking with strangers.

Not initially anyway.

Once they reveal themselves thru speech or body language I quickly decide to proceed or not. Suppose we all do that.

Sometimes, meeting a stranger is a home run. That was the case with William Cash.

Picked him up at his Physician’s office for a trip to his home way in the backwoods of Eastern Oklahoma. Way out there. So far out there my GPS didn’t work. Plenty of time to chat.

So William……got to ask…………….are you related to the big guy…..Johnny?

Matter of fact, I am his second cousin.

Wow. Cool. So did you ever meet him?

Several times at family functions.

What was he like?

Real nice guy but kind of quiet. I also met Willy Nelson and B.B. King. Had breakfast with Willie once. The waitress told him he looked just like Willie Nelson. He told her he gets told that a lot. Never let on that he was Willie Nelson.

And that’s the way our conversation went during the 45 minute ride to his country Hacienda.

He was also a professional diver and had worked on the construction of off shore drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.

A diver in an armoured diving suit stands on a launch and recovery platform on the support vessel, attended by a crewman.

A very interesting and engaging guy.

You never know.
