We had the pleasure of a brief conversation with this affable and voluble Roswell NM geologist who also happened to be dining at Big Ds. The gentleman worked in NYC for many years as evidenced by the delicatessen T shirt he was donning. Indeed, Katz’s Delicatessen is a Big Apple icon who claims their month long cured pastrami and corned beef beats the hell out of the fast food three day curing. Yes, he is talking about scarfing establishments like Schlotzkys.(Not Jason’s Deli though)
The back of his tee shirt has the ad slogan: Send pastrami to your boy in the Army or Service. He had some unpleasant things to say about Texans trekking over to Ruidoso and dominating the city during ski season, but kept remarks within the bounds decency.
I don’t remember the friendly guy’s name, but wager he was single based on his willingness to initiate conversations with anybody willing to gab. We will remember Roswell as a place full of friendly people because of citizens like him!
