Adelina was having none of that.
"My wife used to be a teacher," said Al, a retired engineer. "She put her teacher face on and said, you are
not going to put this on the Internet! You are not going to embarrass this young man!"
While Addie was busy fending off the shutterbugs with designs on embarrassing him, she and Al inadvertently became Internet stars. They've heard from friends all over the world.
"I’m not famous," Al demurred with a chuckle. "My goodness. We were just trying to help a young man out and never gave it a thought beyond that."
They didn't get their new friend's name but said he was very nice. They'd like to meet up again. Does anyone recognize him? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
