My little brother recently moved back home after a six year commitment in the Air Force. I have thoroughly enjoyed having him home. We talk on the telephone almost every day. We have been spending quite a bit of time together on the weekends too.
Over Labor Day weekend he came to visit. At some point he got into my blog and started reading some posts. He made several positive comments. The idea of him developing an interest in fans was very exciting to me.
This past weekend I get a call from him. He's like, "Guess what!" I'm like, "What???" He says, "I bought a fan today!" I smiled a little. He say, "It's a Hunter..." After a few moments of talking about this fan, he had to go so we got off the phone.
Later that same day, he call again. He say,"I've struck again." I said, "What do you mean?" He says, "I bought an Emerson this time." I told him that I was excited that he was getting into this. It was then he said, "I like it for the history." I told him that I understood exactly what he meant.
Tonight we talked for nearly an hour about a couple fans he had seen in a shop and he described them. I told him to go back an try to get them.
So long story short... I have someone that seems honestly interested in talking about fans. Someone that isn't on a message board and halfway rude when you try to talk to them. Someone that you can talk to without paying for an expensive hotel and event fees while doing so. Don't get me wrong people, if I had the money, I'd be at Fan Fair.
I wish there were more people interested in talking fans. Seriously just talking fans. I am toying with the idea of hosting a regional for people to come to in Sikeston. We could go to Lamberts and have throwed rolls.
One idea would be nice if more folks in the AFCA would signup for msn messenger or yahoo messenger where they could instant message each other. There seems to be a lot of folks that want to instant message each other, but they won't do this. I don't understand.
