Cheez always says that no matter where I am, I seem to run into people I know. Well, the trip this weekend was no exception. We left for Utah on Thursday night with plans to stop in Vegas for the night. At about 11:30 at night, we stopped in Kingman, AZ for gas. As Cheez was inside using the facilities, I glanced in the rear view mirror and thought the person I saw was very familiar. I got out of the car and saw two of my friends from New Mexico that I had worked with for many years. They, too, were on their way to Vegas. Weird!
The next day we were cruising along I-15 toward Salt Lake. There was this car that was totally tailgating us! Pretty soon, it drove up beside us and it was some friends of ours from here! (Mesa) They put up a sign with their cell phone number, so we called and found out they had moved to St. George, UT months before and were on their way to Provo for a swim meet! Weird!
Sunday, we went to church with Cheez's son, his ex wife and her family. (A interesting experience for another post.) As I was leaving the chapel, I looked over and saw an old friend of my family that had lived with us for a couple of years when I was young. A strange coincidence again!
We had a fun weekend, and these run ins just made it more interesting!
