You know that oft-quoted line about good local pubs, "There are no strangers here, only friends you haven't met yet"? Yeah, Kathleen and Win are like that. After meeting purely by chance, it was easy to really like their dry wit, compassion, intellectual spark and unabashed enthusiasm for life in general. (Bonding over an extended Bruins playoff run was even easier). So when their first child was born, I double-checked Kathleen's favorite color and made a necklace with all three of their names encoded.
