Mike Kelly just retired from his position as Travel Editor of the Toledo Blade.
So what's he doing now?
Traveling and writing stories for the paper.
Mike was a lot of fun. It was nice to have a fellow descendant of the Emerald Isle to trade stories with on a pleasant weekday morning in June.
I came close to telling him he reminded me of a character Craig T. Nelson would play (remember him in Coach?). He provided just enough not-quite snide comments to keep us chuckling.
Happily, his humor seeped into his feature story, which ran on Sunday.
This companion story tells about the rest of his press trip.
So nice to see that Mike is enjoying his hard-earned retirement. Nothing like a change of pace to make all those years in the salt mines worthwhile.
