We went out for pizza tonight and on the way there we both had the same flashback—to 1990.

I was Sherry Carlson back then, had flown to Oregon from Michigan to make this recording. We’d finished our work and on Sunday night decided to celebrate the accomplishment before I flew home the next morning. I was staying with Mauri’s folks, so I told them we’d be at Ye Olde Pizza (a favorite of the Macy family).

The shop was full of commotion, but the manager called out with a phone call for Sherry Carlson! It was Quinn, calling from Michigan with some time-sensitive questions relating to the Real Estate Guide she was prepping for a Monday morning print deadline!

Ha! That doesn’t happen every day! This was nearly 30 years ago, and we can both remember where we sat. Not so much what happened yesterday . . .

We look somewhat different now. A lot of water has passed under the bridge, so to speak. Ye Olde Pizza changed ownership multiple times but kept the name and the same basic menu. Until recently—new owner, new name.

Goodbye, Ye Olde Pizza. Back there in the prepping area—that’s where our memories will live now.

Time for some new memories. Let me just say—Odd Moe’s Pizza won us over. There’s room at the table. Come join us!
