Catching a Story - Storytelling

videoOne of the things Jim and I do at Einstein's is TALK.
This morning I was telling him about a wonderful telephone conversation I had with my sister Lynda yesterday. Especially about the time we spent talking about our childhood and sharing a couple of Christmas memories.
"Its really important for siblings to talk together or get together, isn't it?" When Jim replied he gave me this story - one I had never heard before. And proved once again - that when we tell our stories we draw more stories from the listener.

Storytelling Tip: When a story comes your way, grab it. There is time to improve the story, video,or anyone thing later. I was experimenting with taking video with my sure-shot digital camera so this is not a good film - but it is a neat story. Especially since I had never heard it before. One of those delightful surprises. I was not about to let it slip away.
Story Bare Bones: Jim was a Freshman at Fresno State College in 1949. A friend, Gene, was elected Class President and to save him from some of the hazing a group hired a rescue helicopter.
