A couple of jigsaw puzzle pieces for you

The bellydancing niece was Rebecca, which made me think of Dave's friendship with another Becca
(who might or might not be on lj) whom I chiefly remember because her hair was capable of growing down to her calves. Dave had mentioned when around her that he had a niece who shared the name, but I hadn't made the connection..

Larry Kestenbaum recited the Poe and Carroll poems. Larry is a very old friend from the Michigan State University Tolkien Fellowship who, once the Fellowhip was more or less defunct, joined the Saturday group that Dave would drive up to Lansing for rotating Chinese restaurants' dinners with Alan, me, Dr. John Filpus, Frank Lessa, Mkie Grimm, Rob Butler, and maybe a few others that I don't recall (and beyond what Alan recalled when I woke him back up a moment ago). Larry moved to Ann Arbor and became a local politician before we moved to Columbus in 1991; as such, I've told him that lj is a Much Safer Place than MySpace.

Larry Kestenbaum I just realized that not only do I recognize the name from Dave talking about him, but that I've actually voted for the man. He's the county clerk here.
