This is my newest friend Earl “Scotty” MacKenzie, who I met last week at the Military Order of the Purple Heart Convention. He heads the MOPH portion of Cell Phones for Soldiers. Throughout the week, Scotty threw me every goofy pick up line in the book. He made my traveling companions laugh so hard and hope they could be like him when they get to be his age. He called me on Tuesday morning to tell me he appreciated my friendship and was in the hospital with 2 blood clots. He was most disappointed as he was supposed to fly out and see the Thunderbirds as a special guest this weekend. If you would like to give Scotty a get well wish by leaving a comment on my blog, I will be sure he gets it!
