Elevator Friends 2

Some of The Usual Suspects – L to R – Doug Witham, Phil Reid, Dick Vinciquerra, Larry Fulgenzi, Mike Klehr

I’ve written before about elevator friends and how special I think our industry is because of the friendships made. Well, here I go again.
Last weekend a group of the usual suspects joined Phil & Joyce Reid of Premier Elevator at their vacation home on Lake Keowee (SC). Yikes – it’s my usual question – “Who has more fun than we do?” I don’t have the vocabulary to describe the bonds that grow between elevator friends – but I know that it is unique. The group consisted of Phil & Joyce, Larry & Lou Fulgenzi (EDS), Mike & Shelly Klehr (MEI), Dick & Carol Vinciquerra (AFD), and Teresa and myself.
Friday night featured a ‘ride the pig’ card game that, as it turned out, outlasted me. I am not dead certain, but I am pretty sure that we solved all of the elevator problems in the world. It’s hard to go to sleep laughing so hard.
Saturday, we spilt into two groups: some went shopping and some got in Phil’s boat and rode over to the golf course and teed it up. Reports are that the shoppers all had a ball, and I can testify for the golfers – what a beautiful fall day to share with friends. Phil is still on the DL – see an earlier blog about his trials – but he shepherded us around the course in a cart of his own, and actually swung a club a couple of times. It was great to have him back in the mix – won’t be long till he returns full force.
Crazy fun, crazy good friends – all tied together by elevators.
