Ron from Great America

Ron and family
Back in my not-so-wild teenage years, I worked at Marriott's Great America in Santa Clara as an attendant in the Engine Company Skeeball arcade. You might think that making change all day would be boring, but we had a good time, mostly because we had a fun group of people. I especially remember Ron for his great sense of humor, featuring Get Smart quotes and semi-factual historical references. We went our separate ways during college, but a while ago he tracked me down using the internet (that's a warning to you bloggers with shady pasts). It was nice to hear from him after all these years. He's back in California again, and we'll probably get together next time I visit my family in San Jose. Ron sent me this picture to share with the world.
