Carol Ogelsby and I are hanging out in West Yellowstone with other anglers attending the Federation of Fly Fishers Fair. Carol and her husband, Pat, are some of those super volunteers who end up working as much after retirement as before. Their generosity and knowledge about so many things make them a hard act to follow.
Some friendships are life-long. You don’t need to see that person for years and when you get together it seems like it was yesterday that you last saw them. Some friends come into your life for short periods of time and have a profound impact and then you separate for the rest of your lives. Some friends, like Carol, come into your life late in life and you wish that your paths had crossed earlier because you so enjoy and appreciate them. Carol is one of those friends, and I wish I could turn back life’s clock. She is special beyond words.
