Long story short, this acquaintance of mine went to the drunk tank and slept it off, this morning, I was able to do some detective work and got a hold of this person phone number.

Luckily, the cell phone was work phone, and I was able to find the number from their company web page. Figured worst case, I leave a message, saying where the car was parked. In case of a total black-out.

Went to Burlingame drunk tank and gave my acquaintance a ride back to the car, and avoided a costly DUI, possibly getting fired.

Did my good deed for 2018, now I can return to being Wascally Wabbit again.

  technical draw: Flash from the past!:

<Being somewhat of a World War II buff, and an unabashed pseudo-expert, I can't even to begin to imagine what it would be like to live through an era or a period of history such as that.>

Guess who wrote that?

I'm watching videos of the North Africa campaigns and I'm up to the Casablanca battle which I thought had something to do with Capablanca. But no, some Germans and Americans, and Brits fighting for some reason or other.

  WannaBe: Security Exchange Commission have charged Theranos & CEO Elizabeth Holmes with fraud!

Guess we are now one step closer to the end of this story. If this is a book, only thing missing is the epilogue.

Mar-17-18  JimNorCal: WannaBe, howzit?
It occurs to me, huh. How to put this? Some Friday evening if you'd like to caffeinate and move wood stop on by.
The point being that a couple regulars have been added and I think you'd find them in your range.

Mar-17-18  Caissanist: Do you have any particular memories of Phil Irwin, aka WhiskeyRebel? You seem to have been the Chessgames member who knew him best.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Caissanist> Why yes I have many fond memory of Phil, a.k.a. <whiskeyrebel>. Have not heard from him for 2+ years, I do hope he is fine. Last I know him and the Mrs. were living in TX, don't recall the name of the city.

We were at Vegas tournament (National Open) held at Riviera and roomed together. That's when he did the simul against A. Shabalov and I took both their pictures (now on their players' pages).

Mar-17-18  Caissanist: I'm afraid that Phil died recently: . Any memories you want to leave on his page here would be a nice touch.
