I still haven't shown off everything I got from my vacation and from the National Card Show, which is amazing to me. When Chris and I left our dinner meeting with Mr. Don McNair, Chris was given a 'grab bag' from Mr. McNair and was told not to open it until we got back to our hotel. We were also told that there were a few things in there for me, and a few things in there for Chris. Chris was told specifically that there was a baseball card in there for him and that I would be able to figure out what was mine.
This also reminded me of something I and my brothers used to do for each other's birthdays. We would take an old toy out of the toy box and wrap it up or get a couple popsicle sticks and wrap them up. You know, random stuff. Eric, III told me that it was something unexpected that his dad did for the kids and it speaks to his dad's sometimes eccentric personality. I definitely enjoyed that about him.
Don McNair accepted Chris and I as if we were members of his own family and I appreciated it greatly. I hope he enjoyed our dinner as much as I did. I really hope I can get back to Meridian, Mississippi and see him again soon. Thanks Mr. McNair!
