Hey, it happens!
Folks DO come to Buffalo, NY.
Many of them are lost and have found us by mistake or their plane got re-routed but none the less many come and a few stay.
More still leave the area but do so miss it and love to return if for no other reason that to visit. For all its issues, Buffalo, NY is a very nice place to live.
Just ask my friend Diane Costello Merritt, who lived and worked in radio for many years before comfortably settling in the Carolinas. This weekend, in to see family and attend her high school reunion, Diane sought out me and Dan Lenard for a visit which was a great treat for me (this time I didn’t have to get on a plane). I didn’t get as much time to visit with Diane at VOICE 2010 as I had hoped so Saturday’s voiceover meet-up was great for me.
It was also nice to see Dan again, who I hadn’t seen since VOICE 2010 (we shared great dinner conversations with a bunch of our friends one night at VOICE and an even funnier story FROM that dinner).I hadn’t seen before that since a Fraley workshop some years back (we traced a bagel marketing meeting even further back than that to when we last got together). This is especially pathetic because we live likely 15 minutes from each other. We’re going to try and make sure we don’t make it that long between visits again…too much good stuff to talk about.
My sincere thanks to Diane and Dan for taking time to visit with me Saturday.
