So far in this project I’ve known most of the people that have wound up on this blog. Not that it’s a bad thing but each post begins with me typing, “I know XX person via XX thing.” I then have to erase it because it would be super duper awful if I started every post this way.
The thing is, I’ve known Cossie for a really long time. When I stop to think about it… he’s one of the first adults I met when I kinda of officially became an adult after college. He worked at Gene’s Place for a period of time and even then he was great at talking with people, making them feel welcome, and organizing things. It wasn’t a stretch when he started to organize the Tail-GREAT and working with the Steel City Beard and Mustache Club.
I’ve attended a few of the events that he’s thrown and he wasn’t kidding when he said how chill and cheerful they are.
