Marty Wenzell found!
I recently put out an all-points-bulletin trying to locate one of my favorite suits, Marty Wenzell. (He’s one of the favored few for whom a jayday flashmob has been organized.)
I figured one of you would still be in touch with him and could identify his whereabouts. Who should turn up in my inbox but Marty himself! And Toto, he’s in Kansas! At an agency named Barkley.
I left Goodby last spring to take a job here in Kansas City....most people ask why, my only answer is I was actually bored after 18 years in the same place and I needed to get out before they found out I was dying there and threw me out. (Goodby was cool about it, he knew I had to reinvent myself).
Good job, decent clients and the challenge is much the same as it was when I started on Olympic Blvd. for a relatively unknown fellow named Jay. Except this time we are starting with 300 people.
Some family news....the twins started college this fall...Derek at American U. in D.C., and Collin at Wittenberg U. in Springfield, Ohio. So I guess my lively and lovely wife Margo is happier that we are closer to them.
Haven’t sold the house in Half Moon Bay, but not for a lack of trying....I’m drowning in mortgages.
My folks both passed away just recently, 7 days apart at Christmas...it is weird but true about couples being so connected.
I’m getting grey, or more grey....and it’s odd to be the “senior” guy that is supposed to have the wisdom to pass along. But as usual I start with my extensive knowledge of drinking establishments and go from there.
Hang in there, life is too short to piss it away.
